SKOKIE, Ill. — Generation Brands has hired 10-year lighting industry veteran Amanda Foust in the incremental role of Director of National Accounts.
Foust’s responsibilities entail leading efforts in securing large corporate account specifications in the retail, restaurant and hotel markets for the entire Generation Brands portfolio.
“Amanda has a wealth of lighting knowledge,” said Matt Vollmer, Generation Brands President and Chief Sales Officer, to whom Foust will report. “We’re thrilled she’s on board to build a national accounts sales team and leverage the power of the Generation Brands portfolio.”
A LEED Green Associate, Foust previously was director of new business development for Technical Consumer Products (TCP), where she managed an 11-person team. Before that, she worked at Venture Lighting International to market and manage the daily operations of its Lighting Institute, the company’s training program.
Foust holds both a BA in Computer Systems and a BS in Public Relations from Kent State University. She will be based out of her home in Medina, Ohio, where she and her husband are raising three children.
