Strand Lighting appointed Walt Dowling as regional sales manager for the North region of the US. “I look forward to working with our existing and future customers” says Dowling. “Strand manufactures some of the most innovative dimming & control products in the industry and is on the leading edge of Sinewave dimming. It is great to become a part of the Strand team.”

Dowling is leaving Parlights, Inc. where he has been vice president of systems design & sales since 1999. Parlights was the recipient of 2001, 2003, and 2004 ESTA Manufacturers Choice Awards. “I wish Cary and everyone at Parlights the best. We have built something very special, and I am certain that it will continue to thrive,” comments Dowling.

Dowling has extensive experience designing, selling, and servicing dimming & control systems. His efforts will be focused on coordinating the efforts of the Representatives, Dealers, and Service Centers in the Region as they address near-term and forward-looking opportunities. Dowling will be responsible for support of the numerous Theatre Consultants in the Region, as well as Strand users in the professional theatre community. Walt will assume his new position on April 24. Contact information will be available on our website at that time.
