Amerlux's Ted des Enfants Moves to Corporate Offices, Further Expands Global Lighting Capabilities
FAIRFIELD, N.J., May 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Due to increased demand for Amerlux products on an international level, Vice President of International Sales Ted des Enfants has relocated to the company's Fairfield, New Jersey-based headquarters to lead sales, marketing and product development efforts from a corporate level. For the past four years Mr. des Enfants worked from his Tampa, Florida office for Amerlux, a leader of task-specific, energy-efficient lighting solutions for the retail, supermarket, commercial and hospitality markets.
"As we increase our investment in the international market," says Chuck Campagna, CEO and President of Amerlux. "We welcome Ted into our headquarters so he can work more closely with our product development, engineering, sales and marketing teams."
Mr. des Enfants has an impressive international career in the lighting industry covering both established and fast growing emerging markets, including Europe, Mexico, Asia, and Central and South America. He is a real entrepreneur with a clear strategic vision who is helping lead the global transformation to energy efficient LED based lighting solutions. He works closely with lighting designers, architects and end-users to specify Amerlux products anywhere outside of North America.
"I am truly happy to join my colleagues at Amerlux HQ," explained Mr. des Enfants, "The office offers a closer proximity to New York metro-based industry professionals who specify lighting projects across the globe but want to work with a local company that can deliver in a global fashion."
Recent success stories include the Rosewood Abu Dhabi Five Star Hotel and Resort, which featured Amerlux Lighting in guest rooms, suites, villas and ballrooms. Working within the international specification community to create lighting solutions for commercial, retail and hospitality applications, Mr. des Enfants attends a multitude of international trade events and utilizes a variety of channels to distribute Amerlux products.
