Amer Maleh has been appointed Global Accounts Manager for Feelux Lighting, the 37-year-old manufacturer of seamless linear T5 and LED energy-conserving architectural and commercial indoor lighting systems. Peter Augusta, Director of Feelux, America, made the announcement from the U.S. headquarters location in Duluth, GA.
“In the not so distant past I would have hired a National Accounts Manager. However, vertical markets such as retail and hospitality are expanding outside our borders to areas with emerging economies now more than ever,” says Augusta. “Amer's title and focus is recognition of this shift and positions Feelux Lighting to maximize its international presence and ability to deliver and support projects around the globe.”
Maleh will be responsible for the creation of sales and business development for Feelux Lighting products through retail accounts, brand merchants, national account distributors and store fixture manufacturers. He will be working closely with these vertical markets across the U.S. and internationally to acquaint them on new LED and other proprietary Feelux lighting solutions. Maleh has served in many capacities within the lighting industry — as a lighting designer, instructor, sales and manufacturing. With this deepened knowledge of all aspects of the industry, as well as his language capabilities (English, French, Arabic), Maleh’s experience provides a more complete perspective to fully serve the clients and representatives of Feelux.
Maleh most recently served as a lighting sales representative in the New York region and as an instructor at the New School, Parsons School of Design. As a Head Lighting Designer for maleh.design, Maleh worked on a variety of both local and international projects covering retail, residential, industrial, corporate and commercial applications. Earning his LEED AP in 2009, Maleh also holds a Masters of Lighting Design from Parsons School of Design and a Master of Industrial Design from the Pratt Institute. He is an active member of the lighting design community and was recently featured in Architectural Lighting Magazine (December 2012) and selected by LD&A in its “Future Leaders” issue.
