New President for the LIA


Peter Scott, CEO of Fern-Howard Lighting, was welcomed as LIA President by departing President, Alasdair McRury, Managing Director of Holophane Europe during the LIA’s Annual Lunch held on 10 May.

Peter Scott thanked Alasdair, on behalf of all members for his contribution as President during one of the most successful and progressive periods in the Association’s history. Culminating in the opening of the LIA’s new state of the art, purpose built testing laboratories.

Peter will aid the LIA and its continued developments to support its members and UK lighting Industry. Including what may possibly have the most far reaching effect on the industry: The Academy, which will bring all of the relevant training providers together under a single umbrella, ensuring a consistent levels of quality and a central point of access. As Peter explains:

“It is a great honour to have been elected President of the LIA and I am committed to building on the successes and continued good works laid down by the LIA Council of Management and retiring President, Alasdair McRury.

Coming from the modest size lighting company of Fern-Howard, reaffirms that the LIA can be represented by any size company and from any segment of the lighting industry.

Access and delivery of exceptional learning programs and the official opening of the Lighting Industry Academy are my objectives during 2016, along with encouraging all LIA Members to get involved with us and their association”.

As LIA President, Peter chairs the 22 strong Council of Management, segmented into the three  ‘constituencies’ of lamps, luminaires and components thus ensuring the LIA’s governing body retains a balanced representation of the membership.

Meeting regularly, the Council members share their time, experience and expertise to help develop LIA policies that are aimed at supporting good quality and a vibrant, competitive UK lighting industry.
