KENT MUMMAU Regional Sales Manager

P: 888-743-5220 | C: 414-369-7656 | E: kentm@optecled.com

Kent comes to Optec-LED with a long record of sales success including 7 years as a Regional & National Sales Manager within the lighting industry.  Kent’s other sales experiences have been in telecom, marketing and solar.

Kent’s love for lighting started as a young boy when he would be sent into his family’s tire warehouses to pull orders.  Finding black lettering, on black rubber sidewalls, in dimly lit aisles was frustrating. He has since, always sought out better lighting solutions.

He likens bad lighting to bad audio quality…both make their audiences work harder.

Kent’s passion for lighting is only surpassed by his passion for family, church, and sports.  While not selling lights, Kent can be found attending his children’s athletic events, enjoying get-togethers with his small group at church and rooting for his Phillies.  He also enjoys tinkering around his small farm where his family raises goats, ducks, chickens, and vegetables for their own use and to share.  Kent’s specialty is a peach/pineapple salsa!
