“Doug has been with the company for many years and exemplifies success at ACT Lighting,” says Ben Saltzman, President and CEO of ACT Lighting. “Doug started with us in our technical services and training department and has developed into a sales rock star!

Saltzman says Suit is ideally qualified to take up the new role of Northeast Regional Sales Manager. “Like Doug, James’s technical background, his values and his skills make him a perfect fit for the ACT team, our brands and the community we serve. We’re proud to introduce James as part of our team at LDI, and we’re eager for him to take on his new role here as we continue to expand the company and showcase exciting new products.”

Suit began his professional career in 2005 upon graduation from William Paterson University in New Jersey. He was a moving light tech at 4WALL in New Jersey before moving to Starlite Productions in Moorestown, New Jersey where he spent seven years in system integration and sales for the full-service AV and lighting company. Most recently, Suit was Regional Sales Manager for Entertainment for Ushio America where he covered the Eastern US for the lighting manufacturer and distributor.

“I’m excited to join ACT Lighting and work with some of the premier products on the market,” says Suit. “The reputation of ACT within the industry was a huge draw to me along with the opportunity to work with the sales team on top product lines such as MA Lighting, Claypaky and Ayrton. I’ve been focusing on the broadcast industry for the last few years, and the chance to get back into the production side of the industry was also very appealing.”
