We-ef Lighting appoints new MD in the UK

David Woodcock joins We-ef Lighting in the UK

(UK) – David Woodcock joins We-ef as Managing Director, replacing the retiring Colin Barson.

We-ef Lighting UK has appointed David Woodcock as new Managing Director.

Woodcock replaces Colin Barson, who is retiring after eight years with the company and 25 years in the lighting industry.

“It feels the right time for someone else to take the company on the next phase of its journey” said Barson. “I can foresee great potential for We-ef now being part of the Fagerhult Group of companies and expect to see the company go from strength to strength in the future.

“I have enjoyed my time with We-ef, working with some great people, with key specifiers, and on some very prestigious projects throughout the world. However, all good things come to an end and I am very much looking forward to retirement and doing all those things that I’ve never had time to do before! It is also good to know that I am leaving the UK operation in such capable hands.”

Woodcock has 30 years’ experience in the electrical and lighting industry, both within the UK and internationally. “It’s a great time to be taking the reins of such a forward-thinking company that has a reputation for quality, style and technical excellence with key specifiers in the UK,” he said. “We have a number of new initiatives to further raise our profile together with a variety of new products to help take us to the next level of development.”
