SESCO Lighting is pleased to announce that John Palk has been appointed VP of Sales and Marketing, replacing Larry Ceppos, now a Senior Specification Salesperson.†John, with SESCO since 2007, served as manager of the Knoxville sales office and was responsible for that office becoming the lighting sales leader in the Knoxville market.†John has also served as Chairman of the SESCO ESOP Committee and has worked tirelessly to help drive growth in both the contractor and specification markets.
John earned his Bachelor of Science (BS) in Political Science at Grand Valley State University (Michigan), and is currently completing work on his MBA.
Additionally, SESCO Lighting continues to expand its reach with Tom Salter, SESCO VP of Business Development, heading up a new industrial division.†Tomís leadership has led to accelerated growth in the Public Sector Division, and he will continue to lead the charge in opportunity growth and expansion for SESCO.
Finally, Larry Ceppos has elected to move back into an outside sales role in our Orlando office. Larry has been instrumental in several key initiatives for SESCO in the last few years.†In this transition, Larry is turning over manufacturer visitation, SPIFF and incentive coordination along with corporate sales functions to John and Tom. We are excited for Larry as well as the Orlando office. Larry brings over 25 years of sales and specification experience back into the Orlando market and has a track record of success. We wish him the very best!
