Luminus adds director of product marketing for lighting business

Luminus Devices Inc of Billerica, MA, USA has hired LED lighting industry veteran Chad Stalker as director of product marketing for its illumination business. Responsibilities will include expanding existing product lines and developing new offerings for Luminus’ rapidly growing solid-state lighting business.

Luminus has expanded its PhlatLight (Photonic Lattice) LED product portfolio from LED light sources for high-definition TVs (HDTVs), video projectors and other high-brightness applications (such as avionics displays) to solid-state lighting applications. The firm recently began making its patented PhlatLight technology available to lighting manufacturers through Avnet Electronics Marketing. At May’s LightFair International 2008 show in Las Vegas, Luminus demonstrated new lighting products such as multi-chip RGB and RGBx modules as well as the first white PhlatLight LED.

Prior to joining Luminus, Stalker was LED Systems Product Group marketing manager for Osram Sylvania, responsible for product lifecycle management activities, project management and marketing functions. Previously, he was in the OEM and products group of Color Kinetics, responsible for product development efforts delivering next-generation LED lighting products and technology.

Stalker’s experience and knowledge will enable Luminus to quickly expand the reach of its products into lighting markets, reckons VP of products Christian Hoepfner. “He brings an invaluable lighting systems perspective to our product planning which will help us leverage the unique advantages of PhlatLight LED technology into a fast growing family of products,” he adds.
