Expanding its network further across the United States, Deco Lighting, a leader in U.S.-made LED lighting products, has hired Dave Alber as the company’s Eastern Regional Sales Manager. Dave comes most recently from CREE, Inc (NASDAQ: CREE) where he managed lighting representatives and lighting sales throughout the Eastern and Mid-Atlantic Region. Known and respected in the industry, Dave comes to Deco with 36 years of experience in lighting. He has owned a lighting consulting company and has worked both as a lighting representative and manufacturer’s representative. Previous to CREE, Inc he spent almost a decade at Philips Daybrite where he served as the East Coast Specification Sales Manager.
Dave Alber made the following statement:
“There is so much untapped potential for Deco Lighting in today’s LED market. I am looking forward to going head to head with the best of them, and educating the end user as quickly as possible. Deco Lighting’s offering is among the best available today, and Deco’s ten-year warranty with labor stands alone in the industry. I am both proud and honored to be joining this industry-leading company.”
Says VP of Sales and Marketing Steve Schwartz, “We’re thrilled to have Dave on our side. He comes with real, practical experience and knows how to sell our advantages over the competition. Dave has an eye for detail and will prove to be a great asset as we grow our specification-grade products in the market-place.”
Says CEO Sam Sinai, “Dave’s integrity, reputation and sense of humor compliment our company culture. Deco Lighting, as an industry leader in LED product development, focuses on moving the needle forward and building cost-effective, energy-efficient LED lighting fixtures designed to change the way the world sees lighting. We’re excited that Dave shares our vision.”
And President Ben Pouladian commented, “Dave has demonstrated the leadership and technical talent to develop and deliver outstanding sales and product awareness. Deco’s future depends on team members who can help create and market the most innovative, technologically advanced lighting fixtures in the world. The fact that he’s also an LC and has worked both as a manufacturer’s rep and as a direct employee of two major lighting companies makes him the perfect asset.”
