Current Names New CEO

Steve Harris

Current announced May 9, 2023, that Steve Harris has been appointed as the new CEO of the company. An experienced business leader and strong operational CEO, Harris will succeed interim CEO Bill Tolley and assume his responsibilities effective May 30, 2023. Bill Tolley will remain with the company as Chairman of the Board.

“Steve is a strong force in the commercial space. He is an experienced CEO known for hands-on operational changes, which is what we need,” said Tolley. “His leadership will accelerate Current and position the company as best in class in the lighting and controls industry.”

For the last ten years, Harris was president and CEO—and then Executive Chairman—at Shape Technologies Group in the Greater Seattle area. He led the company into a wide array of emerging and expanding markets, connecting customers to future-forward manufacturing processes. Today Shape operates with record revenue and earnings levels. Prior to that, he spent 20 years in several world-class industrial leadership roles.

“I couldn’t be more excited to join Current,” said Harris. “They have an unmatched legacy of product innovation. But more importantly, their ongoing commitment to reshape the lighting and controls industry provides a unique opportunity to give customers more of what they want. This is a company poised for great things, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”

Harris received a master’s degree in business from Oakland University and a bachelor’s degree in engineering from Lawrence Technical University.
