Skokie, Ill.-based Generation Brands – the parent company for Feiss-Monte Carlo, LBL Lighting, Tech Lighting, and Sea Gull Lighting – has promoted 14-year company veteran Matt Vollmer to President of Feiss-Monte Carlo in addition to his current position as President of Sea Gull Lighting and Ambiance Lighting System brands. Prior to Vollmer’s promotion to Sea Gull Lighting President in October 2012, he was VP/Sales for Tech Lighting and LBL Lighting.
“As we continue to strengthen our entire product portfolio of decorative and specifier-grade lighting fixtures and ceiling fans, appointing Matt as president of this brand group makes great sense,” says Generation Brands CEO Joe Higgins. “Generation Brands is in a unique position because our integrated team can leverage our extensive brand portfolio across all of our distribution channels-to share best practices and offer the best in innovation, technology and service to our customers.”
In addition to Vollmer’s promotion, Generation Brands has announced the following changes to Feiss-Monte Carlo’s and Sea Gull Lighting’s teams:
- Greg Vandia, who recently re-joined Feiss-Monte Carlo as VP/Sales, is now VP/Sales for Sea Gull Lighting as well, targeting the showroom and specifier channels. He has 21 years of experience with Feiss.
- Stacey Rosenstein, a 13-year veteran with Sea Gull Lighting and the company’s VP/Builder Sales, now has expanded responsibilities as VP/Builder Sales for Feiss-Monte Carlo.
- Bruce Hawkins, who has been with Sea Gull Lighting and Generation Brands for 25 years in various positions, is now the VP/Business Development for both Feiss-Monte Carlo and Sea Gull Lighting.
