NORCROSS, Ga. — Halco Lighting Technologies welcomes Samir Shah as Vice President/General Manager for J&J Electronics. Halco Lighting acquired J&J Electronics, a manufacturer of pool, spa, and fountain lighting products, in November 2016.
Reporting to President & CEO Kim Cook, Shah will be assuming leadership of the J&J business unit as Jim Rafferty, current acting President of J&J Electronics, transitions out of the business over the next several months.
Shah joins Halco with more than 25 years of general management leadership experience, most recently serving as the global marketing and international sales executive for Rain Bird Corporation. He has held GM, business development, and engineering leadership roles for the past 16 years with them. Before Rain Bird, Shah held engineering leadership positions with Anheuser-Busch, GE Appliance, and Ingersoll Rand.
“We are excited at the breadth of experience Samir brings to J&J Electronics and look forward to his contribution in continuing to grow and expand this business that Jim Rafferty built,” said Cook.
