(UK) - Mark Salt new Lighting Association Laboratories General Manager as Steve Poole becomes Projection Lighting's Technical Director.

Following the resignation of Steve Poole at LA Labs to join Manchester-based luminaire manufacturer Projection Lighting, the Lighting Industry Association has appointed Mark Salt as the Lighting Association Laboratories General Manager.

Salt comes from the product testing, certification and consultancy business TRADA Technology, where he developed services and commercial developments to meet industry requirements both in the UK and internationally.

A trained Electrical and Electronics Engineer with the Royal Air Force, Salt served for ten years with the RAF both in the UK and overseas. After completing his service he worked for the likes of Xerox, Corus and TRADA Technology in roles as diverse as Sales and Business Development through to Commercial Business Management.

Poole left LA Lab to head up Projection Lighting's technical and quality functions, augmenting the existing management team. A qualified electrical and electronic engineer with 30 years' experience in manufacturing, quality and international certification, Poole was the Lighting Association's Laboratory Manager since 2000, responsible for business growth, gaining International Accreditation status and the introduction of Photometric Test Capability.

Poole's new role will include supporting export sales through certification of the product range and the in-house test facility at Projection Lighting.

“I'll also be working to improve energy efficiency for the next generation of AlphaLED products and ensuring compliance with forthcoming EU regulations,” says Poole. “I'm excited to be joining this dynamic company and to be part of a brand that is rapidly gaining global recognition for its products.”
