A.C.T Lighting, a leading importer and distributor of lighting products, has announced title changes and a promotion among its top tier leadership. Effective June 1 President and CEO Bob Gordon assumes Chairman and CEO duties. At the same time Ben Saltzman will be named President and COO.
The changes come at a time of unprecedented growth for A.C.T Lighting and ensure the company's continuing success. The company, which is the exclusive North American distributor of Clay Paky lighting and MA Lighting among others, recently added Chromlech's innovative LED matrixes to its product inventory. Earlier this year, A.C.T Lighting posted the highest sales volume in Clay Paky history for the second consecutive year marking a tripling in North American sales for Clay Paky in less than three years.
Bob Gordon founded A.C.T Lighting in 1993 with the mission to identify leading high-technology products, gain exclusivity, and stock, support and service those products as if they were their own. The company has offices in New York, Los Angeles and Toronto. "I'm extremely proud of all our accomplishments as we celebrate our 20th anniversary year," Gordon says.
Ben Saltzman joined A.C.T Lighting in 2007 after successfully launching and running Scharff Weisberg Lighting. A graduate of SUNY Purchase with a BFA in Lighting Design, he spent time touring and working on Broadway before joining the highly renowned systems group at Production Arts Lighting. While at Production Arts he was involved with a wide range of projects, from the construction of the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas to the 1998 renovation of Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
"In the seven years that Ben has been with A.C.T Lighting he has put his indelible imprint on the company," says Bob Gordon. "Ben has more than earned this new position and title."
Saltzman says, "I'm excited to take on this new role, and it's a privilege to be surrounded by the exceptional team and extraordinary partners at A.C.T Lighting. Bob continues to inspire all of us as the company sets new records and pursues new strategies with the brands we represent."
