U.K.-based OceanLED announced two staff appointments to its global leadership team.

The company named Charlie Stuart as global managing director and Lindsay Shapiro as the new U.S. marketing manager.

The company said Stuart is responsible for implementing new business and operational processes while overseeing the product development lifecycle and new product launches. He will seek to drive new global marketing, sales and new business initiatives and manage the company’s employees and all related human resources programs.

Stuart was formerly general manager of the Light Corp., where he oversaw operations, business planning/strategy and new ventures. He also recently completed an executive MBA.

OceanLED said Shapiro’s career in marketing, market research, social media and brand development has helped launch major luxury lifestyle brands during the past decade. She serves on committees and boards for more than a dozen charities, including the American Red Cross, the American Lung Association and Mount Sinai Medical Center.

At OceanLED, she is primarily responsible for marketing, public relations, media relations, social media and events in the United States while also working closely with global marketing initiatives.

“Having spent two years reorganizing the company and returning it to profitability, the time is right to introduce the next phase of growth through the introduction of new products and new key people,” OceanLED CEO Guppy Dhariwal said in a statement.

”I am confident that Charlie, in conjunction with our marketing director, Jim Deheer, and Lindsay, that their expertise will continue to advance OceanLED’s growth and market penetration.”
