After 16 years on Wall Street, Washington D.C. and numerous for profit and nonprofit Board and Advisory positions, I joined Acuity Brands based on what I see as a once in a lifetime opportunity to be involved in quite possibly the largest macro trend in my lifetime. What is the second derivative of solid state lighting? To me it is about creating a networked ecosystem far larger and more powerful than what the Internet has done over the past two decades. This trend will shape the way we live, work, heal, learn, communicate and function together as an enlightened society.
