Cabin lighting specialist STG Aerospace has appointed Neil Thomas (pictured) as its new engineering director.
A graduate in electronic engineering, as well as a chartered engineer and chartered manager, Thomas specialises in leading multi-disciplinary engineering teams and providing customers with technical interfaces (including STC documentation and support).
Thomas’ previous roles have included a stint as sales engineering manager at Page Aerospace, where he gained experience of cabin ceiling and sidewall fluorescent systems, LED-based accent lighting and exit signs.
During the ten years he spent with Pascall Electronics, Thomas dealt with power supplies for in-flight entertainment and fileservers on commercial aircraft. He also expanded the business to enable in-flight mobile phone and Wi-Fi use.
Finally, Thomas has worked in the passenger interface and seating environment where, due to the visibility of seat products to the airline and passenger, the quality and consistency of the LED backlighting, alongside its luminance and colour match to other parts around it, is critical.
“We’re delighted that Neil has joined STG Aerospace. His background, experience and skills will be a significant asset to us as we continue to pioneer new lighting technologies and build on our position as a key player in the aircraft cabin lighting market,” says Nigel Duncan, CEO of STG Aerospace.
