San Antonio-based LED company GENLED Brands, parent company of AgiLight, announces the hiring of two sales managers. Steve Hart is now central sales manager and Bruce Birnbaum is southeast regional sales manager.
Hart has more than three decades of lighting experience, having worked with industry mainstays such as Sloan LED, Ruud Lighting and Optec. Hart began his sales career at a lighting fixture manufacturer, developing programs for national retail, petroleum and restaurant chains. His transition into the signage industry corresponded with the growing popularity of LEDs in electrical signage.
“Now as this market continues to mature, I am happy to join an industry leader and a company that believes in quality and customer service as much as I do,” says Hart.
Bruce Birnbaum brings with him more than 20 years of experience in the signage industry, serving as a sales manager, a consultant and most recently president of BDB Enterprises. During that time, he worked on teams that developed industry patented technology. He served as a valued resource and consultant to many Fortune 500 companies. I am excited to represent such a quality brand say Bruce Birnbaum.
“I’m very excited to have them both aboard” says Scott Vontobel, global sales director for GENLED Brands. “Their depth of experience and knowledge will complement our growing team of experience sales executives and help propel GENLED AgiLight to increased visibility in the marketplace while expanding the company’s global foot print.
