- Dialight has appointed Michael Sutsko as group chief executive. Sutsko joins the board from Laird, where he was latterly president of the performance materials division, one of Laird plc's two divisions with 2014 revenue of US$604m.

Sutsko will join the board of Dialight on 1 June and will be based in New Jersey, where a significant proportion of Dialight's operations are located. Richard Stuckes, who has been Dialight's interim group CEO since 2 February will step down from the board on 30 June following a handover.

The appointment is the result of a global search process following the departure of Roy Burton due to ill health in March.
