Profile Image
Bob began his career in the lighting industry nearly 40 years ago while working for an electrical products distributor. He realized that lighting sales had a technical side and provided opportunities to educate contractors and end users in the process. Bob’s experience is on the supply side of the industry, where he has worked for distributors, sales agency and electrical contractor. Bob has been an active IES member since 1993. He has served on The Ottawa Section board of managers in several capacities including Section President on two separate occasions. At the Society level, he held the role of Regional Vice President, as served on the Society Board of Directors as RVP Liaison, and has served on and chaired several, mainly non-technical committees. In 2015, Bob was awarded the Society’s Distinguished Service Award in recognition of his sustained efforts.
