After 35 years of working at the company, and with 17 years as Managing Director, George Skalski has retired from his position at Ring Automotive.

Skalski saw many changes throughout his time at Ring and not only played a role in developing the aftermarket lighting company, but also instigated the move into new product categories, including tyre care, battery care and inspection lighting.

He now passes the baton on to Theresa Spencer, who was previously Financial Director at the firm. Spencer has been with Ring for four years and has overseen the transition of the company from private ownership to the acquisition by Osram. 

Note: We mistakenly uploaded a picture of Kevin Lee instead of George Skalski on this story earlier. Apologies for any confusion caused.
