Dave has been in the lighting business for over 25 years. About half of those years were with a major conglomerate, in a variety of roles from operations to sales. The balance have been with the agency. The unique factory experience has brought a fresh perspective to the lighting agency, as we strive to do
things different, better, faster, simpler – all in an effort to wow our customers.
Chris has been in the lighting business for over 25 years. Starting in distribution, he quickly found his footing in lighting and became an agent. Chris is a champion of the customer, and his creative problem solving is unrivaled. We call him MacGyver – no problem he can’t solve for you! When he isn't selling light fixtures, he is nurturing a budding acting career ... see him in action HERE
Matt has been in the lighting business starting in 2014. Several years were with local distribution, and the balance with the Q. Matt brought the SOP (standard operating procedure) mentality to first our projects desk, then to our contractor sales effort. His military background and discipline are clear in every customer interaction he has.
Chris has been in the lighting business for over 20 years. Half of those years with local distribution, and half with a lighting agent. Chris brings a customer first attitude, and a make it happen hustle.
John has been in the lighting business for 20 years. He is the other right brain in the office, and comes to us with a degree from SCAD. He has had a number of roles in lighting from product design, to working with an Italian start up. His design intuition is second to none. And he likes big dogs, cooks a mean anything, and is our resident mixologist.

Sean has been with the Q for over 4 years. He is a State grad, with 3 years of Mechanical Engineering under his belt. He is our resident fix it guy. If it is broken, just ask Sean. If he can’t fix it, he will figure it out. This trait serves him well in this business!
Zach has been in the lighting business for over 12 years. Early on he was with a progressive LED manufacturer, before LED became common place. He is arguably one of the more social team members. If you are grabbing a beer with one of us, he would be up on the list. But don’t let the fun side fool you – he is very knowledgeable, and highly motivated.
Melissa has over 10 years of experience in the industry – about half in distribution, and half with us here at the Q. She brings a real sense of urgency to our team, but a calm, cool bedside manner that this group of A types desperately needs. When we need advice, she is our go to!
Seth has been with the Q since 2017. He is an App State grad in marketing. He was one of our first interns, and just couldn’t seem to leave us after graduation. He has embraced a number of roles and is one of our most well rounded team members.
Betsy has been in the lighting business for over 5 years. She is the first, true “right brain” hire we made with a degree in Interior Design from Meredith College. Before Interior Design, she majored in Math. This right / left brain balance makes her uniquely positioned to help with all of your design needs. She gives Zach a run for his money on who you would want to grab a beer with.
Frank has been in the lighting business since 2013, all with us here at the Q! He has an Applied Math degree from NC State, and scored a 1600 on his SAT. When we have number questions, he is our go to!
Josh is our newest team member at The Q. After 11 years working in the field and estimating for electrical contractors he tried his hand at outside sales. Now he is excited to offer that field knowledge as a resource to his customers. Josh follows most sports, enjoys being outdoors, and on the right day you can probably convince him to do karaoke.
Another State grad, that was also an intern. Daniel keeps us young in the office. If you need a good story about what someone did over the weekend, he is your guy.
