Will Chelsom has been appointed a Director of Chelsom Ltd as it strengthens its position as a world supplier of lighting to the contract marketplace.
After spearheading a move into the cruise ship industry, including appointing sales personnel in Miami, the world’s cruise capital, Will has taken a key role in developing the company’s position in this growing market. Over recent years, Will has also opened up the Russian market for Chelsom through Moscow by securing distributors for both the contract industry and high end retail sectors. To continue this major sales drive, Will is organising a large exhibition of Chelsom’s latest collections which will take place in Moscow later in the year.
Winning and managing large prestige contracts, such as the Four Seasons London, the Savoy Hotel London and the P&O Cruise ships Ventura and Azura has given Will a solid understanding of the industry as well as a high profile as Ambassador of Chelsom within the hospitality arena.
Managing Director Robert Chelsom comments, “I am absolutely delighted that Will has become part of the Board of Directors. Since joining the company, he has had involvement in every part of the business, which has equipped him with the knowledge he needs to undertake his new role.
“Will has been heavily involved with me in product design and development for the new Edition 22 collection and his input has given the whole project a new perspective. Will is looking forward to having more input into the company’s future strategy through his new role, and to having an even greater involvement with the 2012 range!”
