Czech Republic-based LED lighting manufacturer Anolis, the architectural division of Robe Lighting, has appointed Darin Fowler as National Business Development Manager in the US, effective May 5th 2014. Fowler, most recently with Kreon Inc., will be based in New York.
This recent hiring is due in part to increased demand by U.S. customers as business continues to grow under new CEO Bob Schacherl. This is the latest of several new U.S. appointments announced in the past months in order to provide the best sales support and customer service.
“It’s exciting to see the level of customization and competitive lead times available throughout the ANOLIS product line,” said Fowler. “The robust quality and innovative nature of the product is remarkable.”
“Additionally, I’ve always had respect for Bob Schacherl and it’s great to be part of his talented team.”
Fowler has nearly 10 years of prior experience in the architectural and entertainment lighting industry.
Most recently he was General Manager and National Sales Manager for Kreon, Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of Belgium-based architectural lighting manufacturer Kreon nv. Earlier in his career, Fowler was a Regional Sales Manager for Austin-based entertainment lighting manufacturer Barco/High End Systems and was responsible for managing permanent installation sales throughout the United States, Canada and Latin America. Prior to that Fowler worked as a lighting designer for Johnson Light Studio and Focus Lighting, both in New York.
“Darin’s practical experience as lighting designer brings us a wealth of knowledge to meet the technical and performance expectations of consulting firms and architects” said Schacherl.
“His National Sales Manager experience will expedite our development of an appropriate representative network for Anolis within the United States. When you combine that with his familiarity of permanent installations and the fully customized LED solutions Anolis offers for both the architectural and entertainment lighting markets, he’s a perfect fit for this position”.
