Martin Professional's Pio Nahum, for the past seven years international marketing director for Martin Professional A/S, has decided to return permanently to Italy to be closer to his family and to concentrate on Martin's business in the Italian market. For the past two years Nahum has effectively managed the dual responsibilities of group marketing director at Martin Professional A/S with that of managing director of Martin Professional Italy SpA. His enormous contribution also included five years of service as Martin's international sales director as well as a stint as acting CEO of Martin UK.

Nahum relinquished his responsibility as international marketing director of Martin Professional A/S effective May 1, 2003, but his wealth of experience in the intelligent lighting industry will still be widely available to the headquarters in Denmark, as he has been called to serve on Martin's corporate marketing strategy and new product steering committees.

President and CEO of Martin Professional, Kristian Kolding, has assumed Nahum's international marketing directorship duties.
