Meet the team…

Commulite is a hard working and passionate team, united in its conviction that there is a better, more efficient and more intelligent way to provide communal and emergency lighting.  A way that saves energy, reduces lighting pollution and creates safer and more pleasant communal spaces for all that use them.

John Bishop

CEO and inventor of the Commulite system
Initially a surveyor, John founded a Mechanical and Electrical contracting business in 1986, through which he gained a unique insight into the challenges of providing reliable, robust and energy efficient communal and emergency lighting for social housing.

This insight led to the recognition that “there has to be a better way”, and the eureka moment came when John saw the potential of combining an intelligent control system with high quality LED lighting. John enjoys golf and tennis and is a keen musician.

In his spare time Doug enjoys golf, travel and is renown for his love of fine dining.
