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.

Alex Burgess

Sales Consultant

I moved down last year from the Midlands to work for Amos Lighting. Having worked in sales and retail for the last 8 years, I look forward to growing and developing the business further. Outside of work I am an avid Arsenal fan, have a passion for dance and keeping fit in the gym

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.

Orlando Home

Sales Consultant

I have 19 years experience in retail. The majority of this has been in the clothing industry where I have managed shops and run my own business. In 2017 I decided I would like a change of direction and AMOS was the perfect opportunity. I am a very keen photographer which I feel has given me a good eye for detail.
Although lighting is a very different business to that of high street fashion, I believe the approach to customers to be the same – warm, friendly and endlessly patient.
My life is my family with whom I share my interests in the great outdoors (whatever the weather!), in cycling, walking, surfing and photography. On another note I am a Lego geek and a magician!

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.

Toni Bishop

Sales Consultant

My working life has been nothing if not varied – from food product development to teaching, from horticulture to interior design. In all these diverse occupations I have found an eye for space, scale and colour, together with the ability to look beyond the obvious.

As part of both the showroom and design teams at Amos Lighting I continue to apply these principles and enjoy helping clients to make the most of their spaces with beautiful lighting and furniture.

Outside of work I enjoy fresh air, either walking my golden retriever, Luna, or sail cruising. Some Amos clients may also recognise me from musical theatre and opera performances around Devon and Somerset.

Sales Administrator

Nickie Tilley

General 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.

Lucy Gibson - Lighting Specialist

Lucy Gibson

Lighting Specialist

Moving to Amos from Fired Earth in 2011 provided a fresh interior challenge for me, but an inspiring one. Working with a great team, beautiful products and lovely clients makes my job even more rewarding.

Lisa Mills

Design and Project Consultant

I started working for Amos Lighting in September 2017 as a Lighting Specialist. However, I had been working with Amos Lighting for quite some time prior to that in a previous role at Cornish Interiors. I now split my week between Lighting Design and Interior Design and of course there is lots of cross over between the two. I love having the ability to transform a space with the clever use of light and gain great satisfaction seeing a project completed. When not at work, I can generally be found out and about with my Cockapoo Auby (who’s also usually at the office with me too). We like to run and go for long walks.

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!
