Chelsom strengthens Operations team with a trio of new appointments
Following two years of substantial sales growth, Chelsom bolsters its Operations team with the appointment of three new members as the company consolidates its position as a leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of decorative lighting to the international hospitality and marine markets.
Chelsom has appointed a highly experienced Operations Director, Eddy McLoughlin, to facilitate the continued expansion of the Chelsom brand from an operational perspective. The new appointment accompanies a series of high profile international project wins and a significant increase in sales across the global hotel, marine and leisure sectors.
With an extensive professional background, Eddy brings to Chelsom considerable experience in international logistics, site operation development and business process improvement, developed in both large corporate and smaller owner-managed businesses. His career to date has provided him with considerable engineering experience and sound electrical knowledge having worked in project driven environments managing large UK and international contracts.
Ganesh Prasad has been appointed as Head of Technical at Chelsom. Key responsibilities include providing technical client support, product design engineering, international regulations and certifications, supply chain liaison and onsite installation.
Ganesh holds a MSc in Light and Lighting and is a graduate member of CIBSE and the Society of Light and Lighting. He has experience in UL and ETL and is well versed in lighting design software including Dialux and Autocad. His experience has been gained working in India, Dubai and the UK.
These two exciting new appointments are further supplemented by the addition of Marc Mcilwham as Electrical Project Engineer, a new position created to give increased on-site technical support to the world wide contract client base. The appointment will enable the Chelsom team to attend sites either for assessment and quotation purposes or to supervise on-site assembly and installation. As a qualified electrician Marc also adds technical expertise to in-house custom product design.
Managing Director, Will Chelsom says: “We have been very diligent in our search for the right people and have no doubt that the new recruits will bring plenty of expertise to Chelsom and in doing so will be a huge asset to the growing technical and operations team specifically. We recognise the necessity to service and support our clients better than ever, ensuring that we have the optimum infrastructure in place to allow us to do so. We are delighted to welcome Eddy, Ganesh and Marc to the team at a critical time for the company ready to tackle the opportunities ahead in 2017 with some of our biggest and most challenging projects to date in the pipeline.”
