SchahlLED receives strategic reinforcement in sales and management

Munich, December 1, 2020 – SchahlLED, the leading supplier of intelligent industrial LED lighting solutions, is strengthening its management team. Carsten Weber takes over the company‘s sales management with immediate effect to expand the sales organization and accelerate the growth of SchahlLED. The sales specialist, who grew up in the IT world, has extensive experience in B2B sales and partner management. Before joining SchahlLED, Weber, who holds a degree in business administration, was Senior Director Sales at Microsoft and Tech Data, among others, where he was responsible for the nationwide sales of software and hardware products.

“We are very pleased that we could win such a top-class sales director for SchahlLED and our vision. With Mr. Weber, we will once again accelerate the growth strategy started in 2020 and can already foresee that 2021 will be a new record year for us”, says Bernd von Doering, Managing Director of SchahlLED.

The experienced IT enthusiast is delighted about the technology and the potential of the company and is looking forward to working together to move the company forward. “I was convinced of the idea and the solutions of SchahlLED Lightning GmbH from the first moment on. The savings potential that we offer our customers with our concepts is tremendous.

I am therefore extremely pleased to be part of a company that makes equally important contributions to both the economy and the environment with sustainable concepts.”

Intelligent light is more than just a means of reducing energy costs. Intelligent Lighting is increasingly becoming a central component for digitization in industrial companies and offers new possibilities via intelligent sensor technology and professional data analysis that go far beyond classic lighting concepts. SchahlLED is already one of the leading suppliers in this segment and will continue to expand this role in the future.
