Lennart Dellby will retire next week after a long and fruitful career in lighting. He started at Volvo Cars in 1984, recruited by Jan Vulcan—a friend of DVN President Hector Fratty. Dellby held the position of Technical Specialist–Expert in exterior lighting, responsible for developing lighting performance of Volvo models from 1987 onwards. He has been the expert in applying, understanding, and interpreting vehicle lighting regulations and related certification issues in Volvo's Research and Development department.
He became a member of the Swedish GTB delegation in 1985, serving as head delegate from 2003 until 2016, representing Volvo in the Eureka Project "Advanced Frontlighting Systems" from 1995 until the end of that project.
