Peter Conlon Appointed Chief Executive Officer of LED Roadway Lighting Ltd.

LED Roadway Lighting Ltd. (LRL) is pleased to announce the appointment of Peter Conlon as Chief Executive Officer. The announcement completes the transition of the Company’s founder Charles Cartmill, who will retain his majority ownership stake in the company and his position on the Board of Directors. “With the appointment of Mr. Conlon as CEO and the recent appointment of Denis Lavoie as Company President, I feel confident that the business is in excellent hands and feel comfortable in stepping back to enjoy my retirement from the day-to-day operations.” Mr. Cartmill was President and CEO of LRL from its beginning in 2002 and oversaw its growth from a small start-up to a global manufacturer of LED street light products and control solutions with 240 employees.

Mr. Conlon was most recently President and Chief Executive Officer of Nautel Limited and, over the past 8 years, oversaw the Company’s growth and development to an award-winning, global leader of high-power radio frequency products and solutions. Formerly, Mr. Conlon held positions with a number of successful technology companies in Canada, the United States and Mexico. He is a certified Director (Institute of Corporate Directors) and has held roles on a number of Boards. The recipient of a number of awards, Mr. Conlon was five times named a Top 50 CEO in Atlantic Canada by Atlantic Business Magazine and was inducted into their Hall of Fame in 2014. He was also named Business Person of the Year by the Halifax Chamber of Commerce in 2010. In 2009, Nautel Limited was named Exporter of the Year by Nova Scotia Business Inc. and in 2014 was selected as a member of the PROFIT500 Fastest Growing Companies in Canada.

“Peter’s credentials speak for themselves. He is the right person to take our business to the next level. The Board and I have every confidence in his abilities and feel this is a positive step in the evolution of our growing business”, Cartmill said.

Mr. Conlon stated, “LRL is the most exciting company in Nova Scotia and I am pleased by the vote of confidence that Chuck and the Board have expressed in me. I am tremendously excited to work closely with the team assembled by one of Nova’s Scotia most successful entrepreneurs. We will work diligently to continue LRL’s success in the global marketplace.”
