Selux Welcomes Jim Toole as Vice President of Sales, NYC
Friday 19 November 2021
Jim comes to Selux with over 30 years experience in the specification lighting market and is a proven leader with a passion for lighting and people.
Jim grew up in Southern Chester County in PA, just south of Philadelphia. When Jim was in high school he was lucky to be guided toward Industrial Design where he continued that focus at the University of Bridgeport. In college he joined a high-end lighting store located in Connecticut. The store was also affiliated with a high-end design firm. Lighting layouts and fixture design immediately became his focus.
Living in NYC for over 30 years, he is enthralled by the true melting pot of people from all walks of life and the understanding of the rich history he gets from the everyday experiences. Along with the city, Jim also loves the outdoors. While upstate he enjoys landscaping, biking, hiking and classic cars — the perfect combination of art, science and all things mechanical. Jim is happiest hiking with friends or taking trips on his adventure motorcycle.
Jim’s extensive background includes President of JT Consulting, VP and General Manager of the Architectural Division at FLOS USA and Director of Specification Product Sales at Cooper Lighting.
At Selux, Jim will be leading our New York City Team in the connection between our clients and our headquarters in Highland, New York. Jim says, ‘New York City has an inordinate amount of talented designers who are redefining how we light our world. Selux fixtures embody artful quality, ingenuity with cutting-edge technology and they are made right here in New York State. It is very exciting to connect people with the sleek, purposeful products that are Selux’.
