Industry veteran Fons de Vreede has joined worldwide automated lighting manufacturer High End Systems Inc. (HES) as regional sales manager for Central Europe.

De Vreede has worked at both Flashlight Utrecht in Holland for more than 17 years, and then Lightco. Most recently during his freelance years, he was project manager for lighting at Disney Paris’ World Disney Studios Park. De Vreede will be based from home in Utrecht, Holland to put him closer to his territory.

Says de Vreede, “I’m thrilled to join the company. I’ve known High End for many years and I’ve always liked the quality, the service and the people.”

Says David Catterall, managing director of High End Systems Europe, “Fons knows the industry, he knows the products and best of all, knows our customers. It’s a perfect fit and I am delighted. This is a people business and we’ve got the right guy.”
