President & CEO
Jay is a professional level lighting designer who also has a broad spectrum of business skills from his years working for large multi-national corporations in the areas of procurement, customer service and warranty. Decades of international experience in aerospace and insurance guide his deep understanding of client service and relations. Years of working in technical industries gave him a strong understanding of design and project management.
An agile resource for his clients, his combination of technical problem solving and personal relations deliver a high level of service to all DDMLighting clients and projects. Though he is very involved in the details work, Jay never loses sight of the all important big picture. A major strength is balancing competing priorities to make it all work – budget, technical requirements, design aesthetic, timeline, delivery harmonization and onsite support are all elements that Jay manages on a daily basis for ongoing projects.
A father, martial artist and outdoor enthusiast, Jay is as at home on the mats/water/mountains, as he is on-site and in the boardroom.
Jay is deeply invested in the success of every DDMLighting client and project, whether large or small.
