ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Adam Carangi
Architectural Design & Specifications Director
Lumenetix

Adam Carangi has had the distinct fortune of working in lighting for more than 20 years, and has experienced the industry from multiple vantage points. Having first started in lighting as a sales agent in Philadelphia, he decided to draw on his education and design background in art and architecture four years later and began to practice lighting design in 1998. In 2002, he co-founded BEAM, a full-service lighting design firm serving as its chief lighting designer for the first decade. BEAM is still operating today. In 2012, Adam chose to change the direction of his career, stepping away to pursue an interest in manufacturing. After spending almost four years with Juno Lighting Group as a Regional Specifications Sales Manager, Adam joined Lumenetix as Architectural Design + Specifications Director for North America in January 2016. This role allows him to more utilize his design skills, working with the lighting design community to further his belief that lighted environment.
