Randy Reid to Resign From NLB

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. — The National Lighting Bureau (NLB) announces a change in leadership as Randy Reid, the current Executive Director, prepares to step down after nearly five years of service. During Reid’s tenure, the NLB has achieved significant growth, both in financial strength and content enhancement, setting the stage for an exciting new era in the organization’s evolution.

“As Executive Director, I have, hopefully, positioned the NLB in a better place both financially and in terms of content. However, I believe it’s time for fresh leadership to guide the Bureau toward its next level,” stated Reid.

Under Reid’s direction, the NLB has achieved notable milestones. The organization’s cash balance has seen an approximately fivefold increase, which Reid attributes to the recruitment of outstanding members and a dynamic Board of Directors that has injected innovative ideas into the organization.

Reid’s last day as Executive Director will be December 31st. The Board of Directors is now actively searching for a replacement.

“At the inception of my term, our main focus was the Annual Lighting Forum. Today, with the visionary guidance of our Board, the NLB has expanded its reach,” commented Reid. The organization now spearheads impactful initiatives, including the Trusted Warranty Program, the acclaimed Tesla Awards™, the Lighting Transformation Awards, Let’s Talk about Light & Health, and the Making a Difference with Light initiative.

Mary Beth Gotti, Chair of the NLB stated, “On behalf of the Board and members of the National Lighting Bureau, I want to thank Randy for his excellent leadership in his role as Executive Director for nearly five years. He has helped to secure the continued success of the organization by launching new programs that help promote Excellence in Lighting for the industry. We will miss his energy and passion for lighting – but he leaves the NLB well-positioned to continue its growth.”

Reid’s final official engagement will be moderating the prestigious 10th Annual Lighting Forum, scheduled for December in Washington, DC. The event, coordinated by Ruby Jadwet, is set to feature enlightening discussions with industry-leading panelists.
