Recolight, the leading WEEE compliance scheme for lighting, has announced the appointment of Maurice Spee from Signify as Chair of the Recolight Board.
Spee, Director for Collection & Recycling at Signify (formerly Philips Lighting), has been with the company for almost 20 years. He has substantial experience in WEEE across a number of European countries, and sits on the board of several other European WEEE compliance schemes. Spee replaces Martin De Jager of Signify, who is retiring from Signify and the Recolight board.
Maurice Spee comments, “I am delighted to be joining the Recolight board. The company is entering an exciting new phase in its growth, as domestic luminaires came into scope at the beginning of 2019. I look forward to contributing to Recolight, as the company responds to the challenge of the expanded scope.”
Recolight Chief Executive, Nigel Harvey, adds, “Recolight is pleased to welcome Maurice Spee to the board as Chair. His knowledge of lighting and WEEE across Europe is invaluable to us. His experience will support the growth of Recolight, and the standards on which our reputation is based. The board is grateful for the support of Martin De Jager, who has served on the Recolight board for over eight years.
Other directors of Recolight are Andreas Adam, Senior Director of LEDvance, who joined in 2016; Bridget Anderson, Financial Controller of Feilo Sylvania, who joined in 2014; and Glen Christie, Product Line Leader of Tungsram, who joined in 2018.
