I have been in the lighting industry most of my adult life, owning the agency since 1993. I grew up in a showroom environment working with family, then starting representing manufacturers’. Helping distributors and manufactures is my passion. Working with owners, buyers, inside salespeople, counter salespeople, showroom salespeople and outside salespeople are what drives our business. I am currently the Chairperson of the American Lighting Association Board of Governors and have been heavily involved for years. I also am a member of their PAC calling on Congressman and Senators in Washington every year. Some of our accomplishments have been Sales Agency of the Year for Kichler Lighting 5 times, as well most of our other manufactures’. I have been given many personal awards by the lighting industry. I graduated from Bentley University in 1982 with an Accounting and Management Degrees.
