Zumtobel, a leading international supplier of integral lighting solutions, has appointed Ann Reo as Chief Development Officer for the Americas. Reo gas more than 15 years of LED product development and a history of award-winning luminaire product launches in the USA.
“For the past three years, we have been laser-focused on new product introductions and improving our U.S. operations now tracking at a consistent 98% on-time delivery,” notes Kevin Maddy, CEO of Zumtobel Americas. “The result has been double-digit growth rates here in the Americas. I see Ann joining our team as the next critical step toward rapidly growing the business in both North and South America. Ann will be responsible for leading Zumtobel’s efforts in expanding innovative product offerings which include both the transfer of even more European designed products to the Americas, as well as products organically developed in the USA. She will also be responsible for expanding Zumtobel’s regional lighting applications capabilities.”
Reo’s background as a trained architect and lighting designer will allow her to develop and conceptualize products with specific applications in mind.
