Industry veteran Doug Carpenter joins High End Systems Inc. as its new West Coast regional accounts manager as of January 4, 2002. He has 15 years of experience in the lighting industry. Most of those years were at NSI in Tualatin, OR, which makes portable control and dimming products. While there he worked his way up from production test technician to service manager to worldwide sales manager.

Carpenter says his years of experience and his electronics engineering degree will help him in his sales efforts at High End Systems. "I've been involved in electronics repair and diagnostics for as long as I can remember, including my years in the Navy," Carpenter says, "so I have an intimate understanding of electronics and circuitry, which helps in this business. Also, I have a passion for customer service. I'm very excited to be with such a powerful organization as High End Systems and to be working with products that have such great value in the lighting industry."

John Wiseman, VP of worldwide sales, says, "We're really excited and pleased to have a professional of Doug's caliber joining our team. We expect him to bring a new level of professionalism to the West Coast region. Doug will work closely with Randy Mayer, our inside sales rep, who recently moved to the LA office. We look forward to seeing the great results of their working relationship."
