Peter Dent named new Managing Director of LEMO UK

After 22 years working for LEMO, Richard Thomas will be retiring from the position of Managing Director of LEMO UK. During his time at LEMO UK he has been actively involved in the development of new ranges of connectors, the F Series and M Series initially for F1 applications but increasingly for defence and aerospace, created a full package of Broadcast Connection products based around LEMO's 3K.93C SMPTE-compatible hybrid fibre camera connector, established a fully qualified connector and cable assembly service, and managed the construction of new state-of-the-art premises in Worthing.

Richard Thomas would like to thank all his customers and suppliers for their support and business during his time with LEMO and to wish them all the best for their future challenges.

The company is pleased to announce the appointment of Peter Dent (pictured above) as Managing Director of LEMO UK Ltd and he will be taking up the role with effect from 1 October 2015.

Peter Dent joins LEMO from Smiths Connectors, having worked within that company's interconnect division for the past 27 years. During his time at Smiths he held various senior engineering and business development functions within the European division, and went on the lead both their Mil/Aero and Industrial business units based in the UK and Germany, respectively. Having started his career in design engineering and worked his way up to senior management, Peter Dent brings with him a wealth of experience in the design, manufacture and marketing of interconnect offerings across multiple market sectors.

On his appointment, Peter Dent said: "I am delighted to be joining such a great interconnect company with a heritage of delivering innovative high-quality solutions that solve a wide range of customer problems, and I am excited by the opportunity to take LEMO UK into its next phase of growth and development, building upon an excellent reputation and strong market position in its chosen sectors."
