Getting to know Stephen

Stephen’s background in lighting

After leaving the Army, Stephen joined Urbis Lighting, working as Manufacturing Director there for nearly 16 years.  He then went over to New Delhi for 3 years working as Regional Supply Chain Manager for Shréder SA, before joining Tom at INDO

What does Stephen enjoy about working in lighting?

The challenge of working in an ever-changing industry – where to stand still is to go backwards.  I enjoy being part of growing a company

Things he’s pretty proud of…
  1. Helping the rapid and sustainable growth of INDO Lighting.
  2. Helping turn Urbis Schréder into a leading UK company in its field.
  3. Helping to build a sustainable de-mining organisation in a challenging post-conflict over-seas environment.
