My background in lighting goes back 40 years. Right out of college I began working at a lighting manufacturing firm that supplied the home furnishings industry. Over the span of 14 years worked my way up to the Plant Manager position. In 1991 I partnered with an industry colleague to form Summit Lighting, we specialized in the home furnishing arena as well. After 10 years in that realm I moved over to the Hospitality sector and have been here ever since. My thorough knowledge of the back end (manufacturing) coupled with my know how on the sales side gives me the competitive edge.
