Luminus recruits sales director to target solid-state lighting market

Luminus Devices Inc of Billerica, MA, USA has recruited David Sciabica as director of sales, responsible for targeting its PhlatLight LED products specifically at emerging general lighting applications as the firm plans its entry into the solid-state lighting market.

Luminus currently manufactures LED-based light sources that act as replacements for halogen, arc and florescent lamps in illumination applications including high-definition TVs, video projectors, and avionics displays. Customers include consumer electronics manufacturers such as Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics.

Luminus claims that its PhlatLight (photonic lattice) LEDs are considerably larger and brighter than conventional high-brightness LEDs and are already proven as a replacement for high-intensity lamps, offering more brilliant color and longer lifetimes in projection TVs and projectors.

“Luminus has added and will continue staffing key personnel in applications engineering, product development and R&D to create new solid-state lighting products for early 2008,” says John Langevin , VP of sales & marketing. “Dave’s experience in the high-brightness LED industry will prove to be a key asset to bring the benefits of proven PhlatLight LED technology to the general lighting market.”

Prior to joining Luminus, Sciabica held sales management positions at Philips Lumileds, including VP of sales for North and South America and VP of major accounts. He was part of the initial management team at Hewlett Packard that established Lumileds Lighting in 2000 and contributed to the firm’s growth. During his 18 years with Hewlett Packard, Sciabica managed various sales organizations including global telecom accounts and the strategic accounts group. Prior to Hewlett Packard, he was technical marketing engineer at Westinghouse Electric Corp.
