Jack Vickery has joined Light Science Technologies (LST) as National Account Manager. The new addition to its sales team is the latest in a string of appointments at the Derbyshire-based company.
Jack’s first step into the industry was as a commercial graduate at Philips Lighting before working for the company in a commercial role for 10 years when it became Signify. He worked across several sectors, including the healthcare sector and office and industry. He worked with global automotive clients like Honda and Jaguar Land Rover before working on major street lighting contracts and tenders.
In his new role, Jack will use his commercial acumen to grow the business’s fast-expanding customer base of indoor growers and nurseries across the UK.
Jack commented on his new position: “It's just exciting to be involved at the start of something at ground level which has huge growth potential. This opportunity also resonates with me on a more personal level, as we’re faced with an exploding global population we’re going to have to feed with ever-diminishing space and a disrupted supply chain. To do that in a more sustainable way requires a complete change in our approach to eating and growing fresh food. Ethically, it’s all our responsibility to do this, and it’s this clarity that will help me drive the business forward.”
