Cima announced that Brad Koerner will join as Vice President of Product Development and Innovation. Brad is a creative leader in the application of advanced lighting technologies and digital media systems. Having spent 20+ years in the lighting industry, Brad has developed award-winning (most recent award from U.S. Department of Energy for Manufacturing Innovator Challenge for Sustainable Manufacturing of Luminaires) architectural lighting projects as well as industry-leading LED product lines. Brad previously worked in the Innovation Group at Philips Lighting in the Netherlands, the product management team at Color Kinetics and as a lighting designer in the Boston area. Brad is an accomplished writer and speaker, having presented at over 30 global conferences, forecasting future trends in architectural lighting design.
“We see leading designers fusing lighting, graphics and digital signage to create immersive new experiences across a range of commercial, retail and hospitality applications. But the most daring innovations need a strong base of project management, customer service and production savvy for successful execution on construction projects. The Cima team has worked hard to build excellent project-based services and responsive client support. I’m excited to join the Cima team and also to rejoin my former Color Kinetics colleague Brandon Siemion, with such a solid foundation from which to launch innovative product lines into the specification channel.”
With a North American platform for full turnkey solutions in signage, custom architectural elements, landmarks, graphics, architectural illumination, and digital signage, Cima supports brands, architects and designers across the country.
