July 8, 2015
Acolyte LED has increased its global reach by adding David Virgona to its growing team of LED lighting professionals. As the Australian National Sales & Technical Manager, David will be covering the
markets of Australia and New Zealand.

David was born in Sydney, Australia, and has a diverse background that includes more than 15 years of lighting experience. After an early stint as a police officer for the NSW Police Force, David worked for Legrand Australia and then Thomas & Betts as a sales manager for the emergency lighting division.

He moved on to Gerard Lighting to reinvigorate their emergency lighting section. Within a 7-year period, he more than tripled their gross annual sales, re-engineered their product line to utilize LED technology, and introduced lithium ion batteries to the mix.
