EXCLUSIVE–MUST CREDIT EDISONREPORT. EdisonReport has learned that Chris White will replace Amy Huntington at Philips Lighting Americas. While Ms. Huntington served as the CEO, we have not been able to verify if Mr. White will have that same title. According to Linked In, White started as a Regional Manager for Cisco in 1996 and left Cisco in the position of Senior Vice President, IOT Sales, Strategy, and GTM in November 2016. He has been a self-employed independent advisor since that time.
According to our sources, Mr. White will be responsible for the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Latin America. Roger Karner will be responsible for the U.S. and report to Mr. White.
While the details of White’s new position have been announced internally at Philips, we find no external announcement as of this writing.
