Philips Lighting has brought on board Alok Ghose as the managing director and cluster leader for Singapore, Malaysia and export markets. He will report to Patricia Yim, market leader for Philips Lighting ASEAN Pacific.
In addition to overseeing the Malaysian operations for Philips Lighting, his new role includes leading the Singapore and export operations for Myanmar, Brunei, Laos, and Cambodia. Ghose will continue to be based out of the company’s office in Malaysia.
He has over two decades of experience in the global lighting industry, having held business development roles across the Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa, Russia and Latin America as well as in the Netherlands. In the past, he was instrumental in setting up Philips Lighting’s home lighting segment.
“Ghose is a tremendous asset to our organisation. We are positive that the new markets under his leadership will reach new, unprecedented levels of growth, reinforcing our position at the forefront of innovation in this industry,” said Yim.
“His breadth and depth of experience in conceptualising and launching new lighting solutions in global markets, leveraging the Internet of Things to transform buildings, places, and homes, will give a tremendous boost to ASEAN’s quest to build smart cities of the future,” she added.
