COMMERCE, Calif. — Nora Lighting recently honored 32 employees who have been with the company for 10 or more years. The longest serving employee is Mila Leyva, office manager, who has been with Nora for more than 22 years.
“We welcome this opportunity to recognize 32 employees for their service and commitment to Nora Lighting,” said Fred Farzan, CEO and president of the lighting company.
“This has great significance for us,” he said. “We started as a very small family-owned business with just three employees in a storefront in Los Angeles.
“Today, as we celebrate over 27 years in business, Nora has evolved into an industry leader because of the loyalty and service of long-time employees like Mila with 22 years, Carol Dimaano, traffic manager, with 20 years, and William Gamez, shipping, also with 20 years,” said Farzan.
“We have been extremely fortunate to have such an exceptional corps of team members who have contributed their skills and time to help us build a successful business,” said Jilla Farzan, executive vice president at Nora Lighting, and who also oversees Human Resources.
