In May, Thomas Mindt was named the new CEO of The Kreon Lighting Group’s North American business unit. Kreon is part of Vaessen Industries, a family-owned global business headquartered in Belgium. With more than a decade of experience in the specification market of the lighting and architectural industries, Mindt previously was the vice president of sales and marketing and a member of the executive team at lighting manufacturer Selux.
“With our state of the art production and engineering facility on Long Island, N.Y., our headquarters in Soho, New York City as well as various showrooms across the country, we are well equipped for sustainable and future oriented growth,” Mindt said in a prepared statement.” Our immediate goals are to expand our existing network of partners and agencies who will promote the Kreon product line just as much as building up the brand within the architectural and lighting design community.”
