Leviton, a global manufacturer of electrical devices, promoted John LaMontagne to vice president of sales for the company’s lighting energy solutions business unit.
In his new role, LaMontagne will be responsible for the sales and specification of Leviton’s broad portfolio of lighting systems, metering and energy management products.
LaMontagne most recently served as director of technical sales for Leviton’s lighting energy solutions group. He joined Leviton in 1994 as a specification engineer working for the electrical distribution group. He played an integral role in the launch of this group and was instrumental in building Leviton’s commercial and industrial initiatives in the Northeast. LaMontagne then moved to a corporate training position where he continued to develop Leviton’s technical support and training capabilities. In 2001 he was promoted to eastern region sales manager of lighting management systems and spearheaded the growth of this significant energy management initiative.
“John has a multitude of valuable skills combined with a deep industry background with focused technical training expertise and experience,” said William W. Marshall, Leviton senior vice president of sales and marketing. “These skill sets will be a key asset as Leviton faces the challenges of an ever-evolving energy solutions marketplace.”
LaMontagne has an electrical engineering degree from the University of Rhode Island. He resides in Barrington, R.I., with his wife and three children.
