Signify, the world leader in lighting, is pleased to announce that Dervan Alleyne is now Commercial Director for the OEM division in the UK and Ireland.

He has previously held the role of national sales manager, helping to drive the industry towards connected lighting by working closely with lighting manufacturers across the UK, as well as technology partners as part of the Sensor Ready programme.
On his new role Dervan says:
"I want to work with UK lighting manufacturers to drastically change the industry by accelerating the transformation that is already well underway. Smart solutions and innovative platforms enable partners to collaborate across the ecosystem meaning we can do much more with light. The goal at Signify is always to positively impact and improve lives in a sustainable way. I believe Signify is the partner of choice because of its strong history of innovation."

This portfolio is something we’re really excited about and so far our customers have been too. This is a fantastic opportunity to support our customers in an area that is finally getting the attention that it needs in our industry."
