Most recently, Zamore was vice president of product development for George Mueller's EcoSense Lighting, where he served as liaison between the company's founders, the market and the overseas factories where the products would be manufactured. Zamore developed not only the product concepts and specifications but also brought new technologies to the table and established relationships with the factories. Prior to his time with EcoSense Lighting, Zamore spent several years heading up Martin's US architectural sales. Zamore's 30 years of experience in the industry, including several entrepreneurial stints where he established his own successful lighting businesses, makes him well-equipped to join the LED Source family.
“I've been close friends with Joe for 20 years now and it makes me very happy to finally be able to bring him aboard,” said company President Marcel Fairbairn.
“We've discussed this often in the past, but the timing was never quite right. After working very closely with Joe, most recently to assist him in the development of the EcoSense range, we came to the conclusion that he is the perfect match for LED Source and the time is now.”
Zamore will hit the ground running Aug. 16 when he joins LED Source Vice President Gavin Cooper to continue the company's growth in architectural LED sales and market development.
“We have admired Joe's passion and knowledge of the architectural lighting markets for years and look forward to finally being on the same team,” Cooper said.
The company has divided its selling responsibilities into three divisions called “Classes,” each managed by a seasoned professional. The purpose behind this is to best serve the diverse customer base. Zamore joins the company's Architectural Division, but it's clear that his strong theatrical and commercial relationships will serve well in LED Source's Entertainment and Retrofit Divisions as well.
“I love the fact that LED Source is one of the few companies that has not only focuses 100 percent of their efforts toward LED, but they are also incredibly focused on each client or application type,” Zamore said. “I'm really looking forward to jumping on board this dynamic and rapidly evolving the business.”
