James PottsAt-Large Director
James Potts became an At-Large Director of the IES in 2019. His involvement with the Lighting and IES spans nearly 25+ years when he took his first ED50 course in 1993 as an Electrical Distributor. He has worked in several capacities related to lighting and the electrical industry; such as Contractor, Wholesaler, Agent and Manufacturer. His current roll has him directly interacting with Lighting Designers, Specifiers, Engineers and Architects to provide solutions related to LED and Control Technologies. Through his involvement with IES, as a Volunteer, over the past 10+ years it has exposed him to a community of people that are diligent about what they do and what the IES represents globally as a society. He has learned from his involvement, not only best practices, but that there is truly something gained by volunteering within the IES organization – You get back what you put in. James has had prior experience serving the IES Board as Regional Director and looks forward to serving at a temporary capacity until the next election cycle.
