Sol, Inc., a provider of solar LED outdoor lighting solutions, announced that the company has hired Curtis Mickey as Southeast Regional Manager and Scott Douglas as Western Regional Manager. Mickey's territory covers the entire southeastern United States along with the Caribbean and Douglas' territory includes 13 states in the western U.S. In their respective regions, both managers will educate Sol's representative agencies, engineers, architects and end users on the values of the company's products, provide training and sales tools to these agencies and pursue new opportunities for installations at retail complexes, universities, commercial facilities and government/municipal properties.
Mickey brings nearly 20 years of sales and management experience to Sol. Most recently, he spent almost 10 years as a Field Sales Representative for Musco Sports Lighting in Georgetown, Ky. where he cultivated strong contacts with both end users of lighting products and the engineers and architects who assist with project design and product selection. Mickey serves on the Board of Directors of the Kentucky Recreation and Park Society, the first vendor to ever be elected to that position.
Douglas has a strong technical lighting background, more than 17 years of lighting experience and 12 years of sales experience, including both solar lighting products in general and Sol's products in particular. He has solid experience working directly with distributors, specifiers, representative agencies, engineers, architects and end users. Douglas comes to Sol after spending more than 10 years with Philips Lightolier overseeing dozens of accounts as a Regional Sales Manager in Los Angeles then Arizona.
"We are excited to attract high caliber talent like Curt and Scott to support Sol's sales growth in southwest and western United States," said Paul Wickberg, president and CEO. "By bringing Curt and Scott's significant commercial lighting project expertise to our domestic sales team, we further strengthen our long-term goal of providing superior sustainable lighting solutions to our clients and expand our on-grid solutions to support the large retrofit market in the broad commercial markets as well."
