Following Group One Limited’s October announcement that it is now handling US distribution for Designed To Shine (DTS) Lighting, the distributor has officially named Tyler Wise as the brand’s national sales manager. The announcement comes from Jack Kelly, Group One president.
Wise, who has served—and will dually continue to serve—as the national sales manager for elektraLite, one of Group One’s other lighting brands, now is tasked with supervising all aspects of sales and support activities for the Italian lighting manufacturer in the 50 States and Puerto Rico. He will also work closely with Group One’s other lighting brands, Avolites and Pulsar, to provide the best system solutions for consultants, contractors and customers as an integrated lighting team.
“Over his past four years here at Group One, Tyler has more than shown his mettle as an effective manager for elektraLite, so he was the natural choice to lead out DTS’ sales efforts as well,” Kelly notes. “Both Paolo [Albani, DTS’ worldwide sales and marketing director] and I agree that his experience and enthusiasm is the right mix for the line, and we’re looking forward to the inroads he’ll soon be making here in the US.”
“DTS Lighting is a fantastic company with innovative product developers and a great management team,” adds Wise. “I’m very optimistic about the products that DTS offers, as well as the incredible support they have for their customers and the projects where their products are present. There are a lot of DTS fans here in the States, and being able to work with these designers and programmers is something I’m really excited about.”
DTS products are key players in astonishing lighting rigs all over the world, from TV studio lighting to lighting designed for historical and modern architecture, light shows for big international tours and lighting for events, theatre shows, exhibitions and expos. All products are entirely designed, realized and manufactured in Italy.
