Martin Buckley will head up the street lighting team at Piggotts after being appointed as general manager.
Piggotts, a street lighting specialist which is part of the Crown Group, has traditionally focused on delivering festive light displays but is now moving into the street lighting market.
Late last year Piggotts were awarded their first contract in this area as part of a belisha beacon pilot scheme with Tesco in Beccles, Suffolk.
Buckley (pictured) has previously managed large-scale street lighting projects for Luton Borough Council, Peterborough City Council and the London boroughs of Havering, Barking & Dagenham as operations manager with Volker Highways over the last four years.
Lee Harvey, managing director of Piggotts, said: “We are excited about the opportunities that are unfolding as a result of winning the belisha beacon project in Beccles. Equally, with Martin now heading-up the team, we feel we have the right balance of experience and leadership to drive projects forward.”
