Aaron AndrewsDirectorLooking back over my career and where I am at now, it’s clear there’s a strong connection with me and the Christmas lighting industry. Over the last 12 years I’ve been invariable throughout my work. I started my ranks as a young apprentice with a very respectable organisation and was part of that team for over 9 years. There was a time I was responsible for managing high profile projects throughout the UK. Now I’m evolving and reflecting on a change of circumstances and experiences. My approach to the business incorporates a passion for art and other creative outlets. I want my artistic attributes and personality to come through my projects and work.
Ross SymeDirectorAfter stumbling (as everyone seems to!) into Christmas lighting in 2004, I found this industry can be hugely rewarding and a great platform to connect with people through lighting. I like to create and build things so I am hands on with products and projects, and I have a personal approach to my work. I strive to build lasting relationships with clients based on a mutual respect for each other's time and vision.
