David Amos


I count myself lucky to love what I do, relish having such a great team and am always striving to do better for the customer, my team and my family.

School was never for me, but the workplace surely is and I guess I’m the perfect example of QBE – qualified by experience.  My father gave me a job in lighting, aged 17, and here I am 35 years later under my own steam.

Hobbies are few, but intense – my family and cars!

Nicola Amos

Company Secretary

My early career was spent in fundraising, PR and marketing within the charity sector.  I loved my work and relished the sense of achievement in terms of making a difference.  Many of the skills learned have been transferred to running our own business now.  No day is the same and I feel very lucky to be a part of such an exciting business.

Work and home often overlap, but home life is very important.  We have two young children who are busy little people, a lovely springer spaniel and a couple of rabbits!  At the weekend, you may find me on a tennis court or, more often than not, ferrying the children to cricket or ballet!

Ashton Hargreaves

Retail Manager

I came to work for Amos in 2015.  I had worked for a lighting company before and surprised myself at how much I enjoyed this aspect of retail.  I have now swapped fashion for interior – and think it was a wise decision!

I am also a trained photographer and this has certainly helped me in my creativity when it comes to looking at clients’ properties.

My favourite light manufacturer is Foscarini for its innovative design and high-end statement pieces.  I also adore anything Italian and so love the majority of furniture pieces in the Amos showroom.

Donna Bates

Sales Consultant

I’m looking forward to returning to work later in the year following the birth of my second child.

I work in the showroom and have a background in furniture so can bring an added flair for interiors to my role.  I love finding out about our customers and what they are doing in their homes.  There is a lighting solution for every space and I really enjoy finding the right one for each customer.

William Dicker

Sales Consultant

I fell in love with the city of Exeter when I started my Geography degree in 2004 and never left! Before joining Amos, I spent nearly ten years in furniture retail where I honed my skills and interest in interiors and home design. I’ve always enjoyed helping customers find beautiful objects that transform their home.”

“When not at work, I love nothing more than spending time outside, especially down in Cornwall. You’ll most likely find me sat on the beach or walking the South West Coast path with friends and family.

Nickie Tilley

Commercial Manager

I’ve worked with David for over 20 years!  Can’t quite believe it, but it’s been great to have been a part of Amos Lighting from Day One.

Showroom staff have taken to calling me “The Oracle” – flattering, but not entirely true.  I can answer most questions thrown at me, but the lighting industry is always changing – so no time for standing still.

I’m a Morris Minor owner,  so when I’m not working, you’ll find me, and my husband, at many of the local classic car rallies.

Liz Hall

Lighting Designer

Ten years as a Lighting Designer has flown by. Being part of a small, but vibrant and diverse team does entail a lot of multitasking and you could find me in the showroom sorting deliveries for projects or even wielding the odd tool or paintbrush as we constantly “play with” and upgrade the showroom.

Outside work, life centres around pursuing an MA in English Literature with the Open University, but sanity is maintained with yoga, swimming and messing about on the allotment.

Lighting Specialist

Moving to Amos from Fired Earth in 2011 provided a fresh interior challenge for me, but an inspiring one and I really enjoy sourcing lights for our customers from our large library of suppliers.  Some of my all time favourite lights are from Original BTC, Davey Lighting or, for a more classic contemporary look, Flos.

When not at work, I’ll be running after my energetic two year old, Lily, and, if ever I have the time to be still, you’ll find me in the garden with a good book!

Christine Hawkins

Finance Manager

I joined Amos in May 2016. I have a background in finance for charities but spent five years in London in two very different roles – one in private equity investing in energy and the other working for a regulatory body. At Amos I aim to develop systems that can provide the best information required to develop and grow the business. I also have an ‘O’ Level in Welsh and quote Vogon poetry!
