Sean Veit Named VP, GM- Residential & Retail at Hubbell Electrical Solutions (Progress Lighting)

EdisonReport first broke the story about Chris Hogan leaving Hubbell on 28 MAR.   On 29 MAR, we learned that Sean Veit, formerly of Savant, would take his place, but we were unable to confirm.  Today we did hear from the company via email:

Statement from Pete Lau, President Hubbell Electrical Solutions:

Yesterday Hubbell Electrical Solutions announced a leadership change for our Residential & Retail strategic business unit. We are pleased to welcome Sean Veit as the Vice President General Manager – Residential & Retail.   Residential & Retail is an important part of the Hubbell portfolio with some outstanding brands including Progress Lighting.

Sean has an extensive lighting background with the Savant company, having held various commercial and operations leadership roles in general management, product management, strategic sales accounts, business transformation and plant operations. I’m excited to see where Sean and our Residential & Retail employees take this business going forward.
