Lodes USA Appoints Rick Leeds as Vice President of Sales

Lodes, the contemporary Italian lighting brand, has appointed industry veteran Rick Leeds as VP/Sales for its expanding operations in the USA and Canada. This strategic move follows Lodes’ recent establishment of a dedicated U.S. subsidiary earlier this year, signifying the brand’s commitment to furthering its international expansion.

With 70+ years of history as a family-owned and operated manufacturer, Lodes has recently experienced significant growth. From the inauguration of its Milan showroom to high-profile collaborations with cutting-edge brands like Diesel Living and renowned designers and multidisciplinary design firms such as Snøhetta, Ron Arad, Patrick Norguet, and Nika Zupanc, Lodes has been at the forefront of contemporary design and technological innovation.

Josie Anthony, Managing Director of Lodes USA, comments, “We are pleased to have Rick on board. Working closely with the executive team, he will contribute to the development and execution of key initiatives, furthering Lodes’ mission to provide contemporary design solutions that celebrate its Italian heritage.”

Notes Rick Leeds, “I am excited to join Lodes during this moment of growth. The brand’s commitment to excellence and innovation aligns with my own values, and I look forward to contributing to its continued success in the region. After all, well executed lighting is the foundation, and exclamation point of great architectural design.”

As Lodes continues to expand its presence, the appointment underscores the brand’s dedication to building a dynamic team that will drive its strategic growth and deliver exceptional design solutions to clients in the region.
