Acclaim Lighting, a developer of advanced lighting technology, has named Dan Erdmann as its Eastern Regional Sales Manager.
With his extensive design and sales development experience in the lighting industry, Erdmann will be responsible for directing commercial sales through distributors, manufacturers’ rep agencies, contractors and national accounts. He will be working alongside his company’s existing independent rep firms to promote Acclaim Lighting to designers, architects, specifiers and building engineers to drive brand and product awareness, increase product adoption and grow overall market share. His sales territory includes Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Virginia.
“Dan’s wealth of experience and industry knowledge has already made him a key addition to the Acclaim Lighting family. His appointment is a sign of our commitment to being the leading company in our industry,” says Blaine Engle, National Sales Manager for Acclaim Lighting.
“Our new innovations and the increasing demand from our customers led us to look for an addition to our team who will fit with our philosophy of innovation and exceptional service, and we are very fortunate to find someone of Dan’s caliber to fulfill this position. We are confident that Dan will play a key role in providing and implementing high quality solutions for our clients.”
Prior to rejoining Acclaim Lighting, Dan Erdmann collaborated with specifiers, agents, distributors, contractors, and commercial customers to increase sales. In addition, he was a part of Acclaim Lighting’s Los Angeles sales team back in 2012.
Erdmann adds, “”I’m grateful and honored to be welcomed back to Acclaim Lighting after nearly a decade. When I stepped away from the architectural lighting industry, I continued to watch Acclaim’s progress with cutting edge market solutions and ever-present design and installation insight. The opportunity to return as a Regional Sales Manager after all these years seemed almost serendipitous. My industry career began with Acclaim, and it’s a privilege coming back to live and work in the market where I grew up. The ultimate homecoming if you will.”
