announces the return of Lee Magadini, a 25-year veteran of the lighting industry. She will be handling account executive duties from the company’s New York office.

Magadini began her career on the West Coast. Upon moving to New York in 1985, she continued to work within the ever-evolving lighting industry—including five years as the general manager of VLPS New York office in the mid-90s. "I am very excited about returning to VLPS," Magadini says. "When Rusty Brutsché, chairman and CEO of VLPS, gave me a preview of the company’s growth plans and the future products currently in development, I was eager to be involved."

Magadini’s experience, combined with her reputation for a candid work ethic, has made her a welcome and familiar face within the lighting community, especially in the New York area. Her primary duties at VLPS will be focused on securing business in the Broadway and U.S. theatrical rental market. "I have known Lee since 1985 and she has always been honest, direct, and straightforward about the company she represents," says award-winning lighting designer Ken Billington.

"This is an exciting time to be working in the lighting industry and VLPS has a unique vision for products as well as an unsurpassed level of service that benefits all aspects of entertainment design," Magadini says. "This company has some of the most creative, dedicated, and industrious people at every level. I am proud to be a part of the VLPS team again."
