Specialist projector lamp distributor Just Lamps has appointed Richard Charge as European sales manager following the departure of Simon Kitson.
According to Just Lamps, Charge (pictured) is now responsible for all sales and marketing activity across Europe and will report to the managing director of Just Lamps Europe, Nigel Thomas.
The distributor did not reveal why Kitson, who wore the European sales and marketing manager hat for four years, had left for pastures new.
Charge said in a statement that he plans to focus on improving customer relationships and expanding into complementary sales channels as well as fast-growing parts of eastern Europe.
He has garnered 20 years of experience in the interactive technology industry, with previous stints including head of UK sales for multimedia at BBC Worldwide, and head of sales for publishing at Koch Media.
Most recently, Charge spent two years as UK sales manager at Nordic Games Publishing.
