Nualight appoints global LED lighting expert as new CTO

19 June 2012 12.00 BST

(Ireland) - Dr. Berry Kock, previously head of Philips LightLabs in the Netherlands, has been appointed Chief Technical Officer at the Nualight group.

Kock's appointment at Nualight, an applications specialist in LED lighting with a particular focus on food retail, is intended to support the Irish group’s global expansion plans which have seen its staff numbers exceed 200 across Europe and North America in the last five years.

Dr. Kock’s appointment is part of Nualight’s strategy to expand into full-store LED lighting and follows on from the company's acquisition of Lumoluce in September 2011 which brought two new competence centres to the group in terms of point source lighting and power management.

From Kock’s time at Lightlabs (a 250 person internationally-staffed innovation facility), he brings particular competence to the group in 'LEDification' (transitioning conventional lighting to LED), Digitalisation (adding intelligence to lighting fixtures) and Applications know-how.
Prior to leading the Philips LightLabs operation, Kock directed the back-end development of Philips Lighting’s compact fluorescent lamp category between 2001 and 2007 and was responsible for operations in Mexico, Poland, China and the Netherlands. Between 1994 and 2001, he undertook various pioneering roles for Philips Lumileds. 
Liam Kelly, CEO of Nualight, said: “Berry Kock is a respected expert in LED lighting, particularly in the area of intelligent control and innovative applications of LED lighting.  He brings a wealth of experience to Nualight's expert development team and will accelerate the achievement of our vision to radically reinvent how lighting is used to drive commercial performance by the world’s leading retailers.”
