July 3, 2014 – Scott Muse, president of Hubbell Lighting, will be retiring from the Company effective September 30, 2014, after a 35-year career in the electrical industry, and having served in his current role since April 2002.
“In his role, Scott executed major restructuring to significantly reduce our costs while increasing our competitive position and profitability in addition to completing acquisitions of seven lighting brands to add to the strength of our lighting product package,” said Hubbell chair, president and CEO, David G.
