Peter Johansen joins SGM

Peter Johansen, who originally piloted Martin Professional to become the world’s most influential lighting manufacturer, takes on the role of Director of SGM R&D. Based in Aarhus, Denmark, with eight of his former R&D team, Johansen will oversee parallel development of a series of conventional discharge moving lights and LED fixtures.

The Dane says he had no intention of re-entering the lighting industry once his 10-year non-compete contract had expired following the sale of Martin Professional. However, after meeting Arturo Vicari the deal was struck. ‘I could see they would be great guys to work with — but I only agreed to join SGM on the understanding that I could get my old team back,’ explains Johansen. ‘I asked them whether they were ready to do it again — and they were immediately hooked on the idea.’
