Ken Sanchez - President
Ken has over 15 years of LED Lighting experience and 30+ years in the electronics and manufacturing industry. He received a BSEE in 1985 from the University of South Florida and had dual Master of Science studies in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, FL.
During his career as an engineer and engineering manager he directed product development for companies such as Lockheed Martin, 3M, Dupont, United Technologies, Corning and LG. Ken spent 17 years in the electronics distribution industry first serving as Southeast Area Communications Specialist consulting with companies like Advanced Fiber Comm, Wave Wireless and Coppercom. After seeing the first high power LED's hit the scene in 2000, he saw this as an industry game changing technology. This prompted a switch to Southeast Area Lighting Specialist and he's been involved in the industrial and commercial Solid State Lighting market ever since. He founded his own industrial LED manufacturing business that successfully took products from concept through production and agency listings and delivered to end users. Ken has consulted with countless luminaire manufacturers in industrial and commercial markets and designed the first marine LED lights to successfully pass Coast Guard Standards as a consultant for Unified Marine. His most recent experience was as Chief Technical Officer for Hilumz LLC.
In these roles Ken received a diverse background in solid-state lighting, network controls and communications, electronic hardware and software product development, manufacturing, management of cross functional teams, quality control, supply chain management, sales channels and product launch.
