Orange County and San Diego Business Journal Recognize Best Companies for County’s Economy, Workforce & Business
Costa Mesa, CA (July 1, 2019) – Western Lighting and Energy Controls, one of the leading Southern California Representative agencies, announced today that it was named one of the 2019 Best Places to Work in Orange County and San Diego. The Orange County and San Diego Business Journal designed the award to recognize the top businesses benefiting the county’s workforce and economy.
Western Lighting and Energy Controls is an employee-owned company that offers unprecedented levels of service and support to professionals in the lighting and energy control industry. The company’s success in providing exceptional service is paralleled to having great employees who are passionate about their work, focused, and dedicated to the company and its customers.
“We are thrilled to be a recipient for the award for Best Place to Work in Orange County and San Diego,” said Matt Sedlock, Principal of Western Lighting and Energy Controls. “We place great value in our team and owe our success to our enthusiastic employees and their passion for serving our clients. We believe in always supporting the well-being of our employees above all else and providing them continuous training to advance their careers within the company.”
Early this year, Western Lighting and Energy Controls became an employee-owned company through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), as a way to reward its dedicated employees for playing an essential part in the company’s success. An ESOP is an employee benefit plan, which provides company stock to employees as part of their retirement benefit plan.
“We started as a small team with just two employees and a small sales agency, and over two decades have grown to a team of more than fifty lighting professionals,” said Jimm Reifsnyder, Principal of Western Lighting and Energy Controls. “We understand the importance of enriching our employees with continuous training and product education to ensure they have the resources they need to be successful. We are proud to call Western Lighting and Energy Controls home and feel honored to be part of this hard-working family.“
