Peter Fordham

Peter has been interested in lighting for as long as he can remember, getting involved in lighting for bands and shows through school and at Imperial College, from where he also managed to graduate with a degree in electrical and electronic engineering.  Peter’s first job was as Deputy Chief Electrician in a West End theatre, working on lighting for shows from Our Town to Tommy.

Following 11 years at the Royal Shakespeare Company as Engineering Manager, Peter joined Amec – shortly after Morgan Sindall – as an electrical designer, where he developed his skills in lighting design, completing the LET Diploma in Light and Lighting and becoming the company’s Lighting Specialist.  In 2016 he moved to Sainsbury’s as Electrical Engineering Design Manager, responsible for overseeing the electrical design requirements for the company – in particular the roll out of LED lighting across the Sainsbury’s, Argos and Habitat estates.

Peter is a Chartered Electrical Engineer, a Fellow of the Society of Light and Lighting, and Member of the Institution of Engineering Technology.  He was elected as a Member of the Council of the Society of Light and Lighting this year.
