In her new position, Li will collaborate with senior management to oversee all facets of operations, encompassing sales, marketing, product development, human resources, supply chain, and IoT.

“Becky has always been an integral and dedicated executive at our firm,” Says Wang. “With her wealth of experience in senior executive roles and adept strategic planning skills, we are confident in her ability to lead. We look forward to watching Becky at the helm as we continue to prepare this company for exponential growth.”

“I am deeply thankful to Tony and Dirk for their guidance and support,” says Li. “I am excited about the promising future ahead with our dynamic WAC team.”

With nearly three decades of service at WAC, Li’s journey began in the accounting department, where she rose to the position of controller. Subsequently, she was named executive vice president, where she played a pivotal role in overseeing the company’s operations. Moreover, her active involvement in WAC’s Giving Back Program, particularly in supporting the American Cancer Society, underscores her commitment to social responsibility.

A Cum Laude graduate of Baruch College in New York City, Ms. Li brings a wealth of expertise and steadfast commitment to WAC Lighting’s continued success.

WAC Dedicates Office to Late Executive Leonard Schwartz

Wang also announced the dedication of a main office in honor of the late executive Leonard M. Schwartz. The office will be called the “Leonard M. Schwartz Memorial Conference Room.”

According to Wang, the wall plaque reads, “One of the finest men we ever met. A gentleman in every sense of the word; he was very generous, kind, and successful in his personal and professional life. Leonard was instrumental in helping build WAC into the industry leader it has become today. He always inspired people and had a great gift for seeing the best in everyone. We will sorely miss his patient empathy, fierce friendship, and generosity of spirit.”

Schwartz was employed by WAC for more than three decades, serving as executive vice president of sales and marketing, sales representative, and consultant.  Schwartz enjoyed a long career in the lighting industry dating back to the late 1950s.
