Industry veteran Sean Hoey has returned to lighting manufacturer High End Systems Inc. in Austin, TX as the new sales manager for the Southeastern U.S.

Hoey was formerly HES sales manager of various U.S. regions from March 1991 to August 2001, ending as director of Americas sales. He most recently spent three years with Vari-Lite as regional sales manager for the Central and Southeastern U.S.

"I’m home," Hoey says of his return to HES. "I’m optimistic about where the company is headed, and I’m very glad to be back where I belong."

"We couldn’t be more pleased to have Sean back at High End," HES CEO Frank Gordon. "He brings years of valuable industry experience, and we welcome him to our sales team as we move further into the digital lighting market."
