Xicato continued to expand its sales team and announced the addition of LED lighting specialists Charles Scheibler and Nick Gibbs to its sales team. Scheibler is based in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area and will serve Xicato’s customer base throughout the mid-west. Gibbs is based in the United Kingdom and will serve customers in the UK and Nordic region.

“As the transition from conventional to LED light sources continues, we believe it’s critical to support our customers with both the technical engineering and lighting knowledge necessary for success and Charles and Nick clearly have the experience that will help customers become more successful,” said Gerhard Rieser, VP Worldwide Sales for Xicato.

Scheibler’ years of experience have taken him around the globe. He has worked on strategic partnerships in Taiwan and China and coordinated with organizations here in the U.S. such as UL, the EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy. He has spent the last several years at Soraa as the OEM and Technical Sales Manager.

Gibbs, who was previously with Bridgelux, has built strategic partnerships with some of Europe’s leading lighting manufacturers and supported their efforts to globalize their portfolios to support lighting designer efforts around the world.

Both Scheibler and Gibbs are expert at supporting customers’ luminaire programs and helping end-users and lighting designers achieve the lit effect they desire.
