About Brian Franco
With nearly 20 years of experience in the lighting industry, Brian has established himself as a seasoned professional. After graduating from Penn State with a degree in Architectural Engineering, he embarked on his career as a lighting designer in San Francisco. In 2014, Brian joined the Lighting Systems family, transitioning to the lighting rep side of the industry.
Currently, Brian plays a pivotal role on the Applications and Technical Support Team, where he focuses on supporting the Lighting Systems sales team. His responsibilities include providing customers with design and specification assistance, conducting lighting calculations, and offering technical support. Brian’s expertise is further bolstered by his LEED AP BD+C credential and his status as a Lighting Certified (LC) professional.
Although Brian’s childhood involved frequent relocations, including stops in Budapest, Hungary, and Rochester, NY, he has always considered the greater Philadelphia area his home. He continues to make regular visits to the area to spend time with family and friends. Additionally, Brian recently tied the knot with his wife Brooke in a picturesque ceremony on the shores of Lake Tahoe in 2021. The couple just welcomed a new addition to their family in 2023, a baby boy!
When Brian isn’t immersed in the world of lighting projects, he indulges in his love for outdoor activities. In the winter, you’ll find him chasing powder on his snowboard in the mountains, while in the warmer months, he enjoys hiking, camping, biking, and tending to his garden.
