Havells-Sylvania loses UK managing director

Havells-Sylvania’s UK managing director John Williams has left the company by mutual agreement after being in the role for only a year.

His responsibilities will be taken on by others in the company.

Williams' departure from the lamp and luminaire manufacturer follows that of Dave Ribbons, who until recently was vice president of sales and marketing for the EMEA region.

Williams (pictured at the Lux Awards) had been with Havells-Sylvania since March 2010, having previously worked at Thorn and Fitzgerald Lighting.
