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.
“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,” said Generation Brands CEO Joe Higgins.
Prior to Vollmer’s promotion to Sea Gull Lighting President in October 2012, he was Vice President of Sales for Tech Lighting and LBL Lighting.
“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,” added Higgins.
With Vollmer’s promotion, Generation Brands announces others which further build the Feiss-Monte Carlo and Sea Gull Lighting teams:
• Greg Vandia, who recently re-joined Feiss-Monte Carlo as Vice President of Sales, is now Vice President of Sales for Sea Gull Lighting as well, targeting the showroom and specifier channels. He has 21 years of experience with Feiss, and prior to that, Vandia was a manufacturer’s rep.
• Stacey Rosenstein, who’s been with Sea Gull Lighting for more than 13 years and is Vice President of Builder Sales, now has expanded responsibilities as Vice President of Builder Sales for Feiss-Monte Carlo as well.
• Bruce Hawkins, who has been with Sea Gull Lighting and Generation Brands for 25 years in various positions, is now the Vice President of Business Development for both Feiss-Monte Carlo and Sea Gull Lighting.
