Barbizon Lighting Atlanta and Charlotte Announce New Sales and Systems Managers

Barbizon Lighting’s North Carolina and Georgia Regional General Manager Bob Leonard introduced new products/expendables and systems integration sales managers for the Atlanta and Charlotte offices.

Rebecca Beasley is now the Products & Expendables Sales Manager.  Rebecca started with Barbizon Lighting in 2014 as a sales associate and now will lead the Atlanta and Charlotte offices sales teams.

Ms. Beasley received her Master of Arts from Austin Peay State University and started in the industry working in theatrical and event companies, and eventually migrated to the dealer distributor side of the industry.  “Rebecca understands the industry from both the end-user and distributor standpoint,” says General Manager Bob Leonard. “She’s an amazing communicator, and her ability to hear and understand customer and team member perspectives makes her well-suited for this role.”  

Rebecca is also a board member of the Southeastern Theatre Conference. 

New to Barbizon Lighting is Jeff Hanson, who will be leading the Atlanta and Charlotte Systems Integration Groups. Jeff is responsible for the day to day management of systems sales & integration, project management, and technical services.  

Coming to the industry from the audio-visual side, most recently as a regional sales manager for Unified Technology Systems, Hanson holds an AVIXA CTS certification and has a deep understanding of sales management, system design, direct sales, customer relations, strategic planning, and contract negotiations.

Regional General Manager Leonard continues, “Jeff is a great addition to the Barbizon Lighting family. His understanding of the process and flow of systems projects from initial talks through contracts, and finally at customer turn-over is a great fit as we see the scale and complexity of systems work grow here in the Southeast.”
