Who We Are

At Lighter, we're a dedicated team brought together by our solid understanding of the lighting industry and an unwavering passion for preserving and enhancing our environment.

James Young

James is passionate about the environment and sustainability. He founded Lighter after recognising the need for more energy efficient and effective lighting in commercial and industrial enterprises.

James has a Masters in Applied Science and has held numerous roles in the private and public sector involving sustainability, renewable energy, carbon emission measurement reduction and financial trading and risk.

When not working, you'll find James competing in Waka Ama, running on the Port Hills, fishing or enjoying beach walks and brunch with his partner and their dog.

Anita Fischer

Anita is a highly valued member of the Lighter family, having worked in the lighting industry for over 11 years, she’s an absolute pro and ensures every install runs smoothly. In 2019, Anita earned a prestigious scholarship in the Women in Construction Sector, leading her to pursue a comprehensive study in Workplace Health and Safety, which she successfully completed in 2021.

Meet Andrew, an integral member of the Lighter team, bringing a wealth of business knowledge and experience to the table. As our Auckland-based Business Manager, Andrew spearheads the growth and development of new sales across the region, with a commitment to building strong relationships and ensuring a high level of customer satisfaction, support and service. 

Andrew balances his professional pursuits with personal passions, whether it's teeing off with one of his sons on the golf course, strolling along the picturesque beaches of Auckland's North Shore with his wife, or spending quality time with friends and family.

Stephanie Young
Marketing Coordinator

Stephanie is a vital asset to the Lighter team, expertly handling marketing, content creation, our website, and social media. Graduating with a Tourism Management Degree from Lincoln University, her passion for travel and the environment is evident in every project she undertakes.

She’s always eager to learn and grow, taking dance classes, finding serenity while running on the hills, and has recently discovered the joy of fishing, thanks to her colleagues. Stephanie's combination of professional acumen and zest for life infuses our team with creativity and energy.

Chief Well-being Officer

Meet Scribbles, the top dog at Lighter when it comes to our mental and physical well-being. With an innate sense of when we need a break, Scribbles ensures we take our much-needed lunchtime strolls.

Although he occasionally interrupts phone calls with his signature bark and hasn't quite mastered the art of brewing coffee, his constant companionship and unwavering positivity make up for it. 

Easily the most endearing (and furriest) member of our team, Scribbles keeps our spirits high and reminds us of life's simple joys. Every office needs a buddy like Scribbles!
