Tom Wilkes Joins White Light as Business Development Manager

London based lighting and AV specialist, White Light announce the appointment of Tom Wilkes as Business Development Manager for the company.

Following a busy year for the company, Tom’s appointment will focus predominantly on managing the hire aspects of the various markets in which White Light operates. He comments: “I am absolutely delighted to be joining White Light at such an exciting time. Whether it’s corporate events, broadcast, education, trade, retail, or themed attractions, we have a strong reputation in each of these fields and this is something I will be looking to further strengthen”.

Tom joins from Vision SL, a technical production company that he founded in 2009. A technical solutions company, Vision SL began by supplying lighting and audio to various bars and clubs. It then progressed into supplying events and festivals before the company began to specialise in video projection and LED mapping. As part of Tom’s involvement, Vision SL will become part of White Light.

Tom explains: “Joining White Light seemed like the next natural step for both myself and Vision SL as a company.  We are aware of White Light’s position in the video mapping industry, from their work on ITV Sport broadcasts to their recent investment in the Christie Boxer Projectors. Their desire to invest in the latest technology and provide their customers with the very best service possible reflects the values of Vision SL.

He adds: “We have such a strong relationship with our current Vision SL customers that this is something I want to continue as we move over to White Light. By continuing our relationship, this simply means that we can continue to offer them a great service, with the additional resources of White Light”.

Bryan Raven, White Light’s Managing Director, states: “We are absolutely delighted to have Tom joining the team here at White Light. The enthusiasm and experience he has will prove vital. We’re looking forward to him nurturing our existing relationships as well as developing new ones”.

Tom began his role 1st September and is part of the White Light team presenting at this year’s PLASA Show at Olympia London, taking place between 18-20th September.
