May 28, 2021

(UK) – The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Institution of Lighting Professionals (ILP), Tracey White is to stand down from her position later this year.

After three years in post, White is relocating abroad and will work on new projects from a distance.

Commenting on White’s decision, Anthony Smith, ILP President, said: “It was with reluctance but understanding I accepted Tracey’s resignation. Over the last three years she has delivered in all areas, working tirelessly to improve the standing of the Institution within the industry and government, alongside the day-to-day duties of the CEO role.

“The Executive Board and I wish Tracey well in the next, much sunnier chapter of her life and thank her for all the hard work, guidance and commitment to the Institution during her time at the helm. Tracey is working with the Executive Board in relation to finding a suitable replacement and is committed to ensuring a smooth transition.”

Tracey White replied: “It has been a privilege and honour to serve as CEO of the ILP. The last three years have been extremely successful for the ILP. We have continued to maintain and develop our services to members and represent their interests, in spite of the difficulties posed by the pandemic.

“I have been lucky enough to work with very talented colleagues on the Board and within the staff team and I have enjoyed working with skilled professionals across our sector. I have no doubt that the ILP is well-equipped to meet the future challenges of the lighting industry and I would like to wish the Board, the members and my future successor all the best.”

The ILP Board has agreed a process for recruiting Tracey White’s successor. Expressions of interest can be made to
