In his new role, Greg is responsible for all aspects of Venture Lighting Canada channels as he transitions the management of the company’s activity in Canada from Forbes MacLean, director of sales, industrial/commercial sector. (Forbes will continue to expand his focus on industrial and commercial opportunities in the Americas.)

“Greg’s 23 years of sales management experience in the Canadian electrical and lighting industry, his strong work ethic and his dedication to serving his customers has proven to us that he is the right choice to lead our ongoing efforts in this very important market,” said Ken Hawley, vice-president of sales and marketing.

Greg joined Venture Lighting Canada in April 2008 and has been responsible for the establishment of the company’s network of independent manufacturer representatives across Canada. Over the past five years, he has managed sales and marketing activities with the re-introduction of the Venture and Ballastronix brands in the Canadian distribution sector.


“Forbes Maclean has done an outstanding job in leading the Canadian team for many years, and it is very important to us have a smooth transition in management leadership,” said Hawley. “We couldn’t be more pleased with Greg’s performance, and he and Forbes will continue to have a close working relationship as this change is implemented.”
