STONEHAM, Mass., Jan. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CIRCADIAN® Light, the world leader in safely regulating the harmful bioactive blue wavelengths that increase the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and breast and prostate cancers at night (www.circadianlight.com), today announced that it has appointed lighting industry veteran John Castner to lead its lighting fixture product launch into industries with at-risk 24/7 workforces.
John Castner brings 30 years of lighting and LED executive sales management experience to CIRCADIAN Light. Previously, John was VP Global Accounts at Dialight, an industrial LED lighting company with annual sales in excess of $200 million. Over the last 5 years he has managed a sales organization including direct and indirect reports, regional / country sales managers, agents and distributors. John previously held sales management positions with Sylvania, Hubbell and Amtech (ABM). Mr. Castner has an MBA from University of California, Irvine, a B.A. from Occidental College, Los Angeles and is a member of the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA).
"I am excited to join CIRCADIAN Light, and have the opportunity to help shape the future of lighting," said John Castner. "Their world-class medical research, protected by a robust global IP portfolio, has identified the exact spectra for optimizing human performance and productivity during the day and protecting workers from the harmful effects of conventional LED and fluorescent light exposure at night. My experience in marketing and selling lighting into oil & gas, metals, pulp & paper, food & beverage, power generation, automotive and heavy manufacturing markets aligns well with CIRCADIAN's pre-existing Fortune 500 customer base."
"John brings the key industry expertise we need to bring our lighting products to the 24/7 market" said Dr. Martin Moore-Ede, CEO of CIRCADIAN Light, "Our lights designed for the 24/7 workplace contain our proprietary LED chips and circadian control systems attuned to the latitude and longitude of each installation site zip code. They provide high quality DLC-2016 efficient 3200-4200K white light 24/7 with energizing blue wavelengths during the day and 90% less bio-active blue than conventional LEDs at night. They are a huge improvement over the previously available "circadian" color tuning options which only partially reduce blue wavelength risk by providing dim, low CCT and/or yellow light at night."
