Joe Leibel

Account Manager

I have over 8 years of experience in the North Dakota Electrical Industry. I started at Graybar Electric in 2011 as an Outside Sales Representative focusing on lighting as my area of expertise. In 2015, I started with Eaton where for 4 years I was a Sales Engineer covering Electrical Engineers, Distributors, and Contractors for the entire State of North Dakota. Most recently, I decided to get back into the lighting side of the business where I got my start in the industry, and find to be my true passion, which led me to JTH Lighting Alliance where I was their ND Sales Associate focusing on specifiers and electrical contractors. I live in Bismarck, North Dakota with my wife of seven years, Jess, who is an RN by trade and is currently a Director with Sanford Health in Bismarck. Last year we were blessed with our first child, Jensen Anton. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife and son, hunting pheasants with my two pointing dogs, and helping my dad with the family farm in Northern South Dakota.

James "Jay" Woggon

Account Manager

I started working in the lighting industry in 2003 after I graduated with a degree in Industrial Design. I began fabricating decorative lighting for a small studio practice called CP Lighting. Shortly after that, I started my own decorative lighting company designing and building custom fixtures for hospitality, retail, and some residential projects. In late 2008, I went to work for RB Wagner as a welder and quickly soon began writing a business plan for lit handrail and transitioning to product manager, marketing manager, and regional sales manager for the eastern half of the country and Canada. In 2015, I moved to Vermont to manage the commercial department at Hubbardton Forge. In 2017, I moved into specification sales and applications for Apex Lighting, working in Vermont and New Hampshire.

Richard Stock

Controls Manager - Wisconsin

My lighting and controls career started with Kenall Manufacturing in 2008. I started as a welder while finishing my bachelors degree in business management, and moved into the front office in quotes where I stayed for four years. From there, I moved to the applications department as an applications engineer and enjoyed getting more involved with controls for three years that I was in that role. For the past three years, I've been with Archibald and Meek as a Lutron controls quotations specialist and project manager. For fun, I enjoy making old world Sicilan wine, bowling on Sunday mornings, and competing in chili cook-offs. I have two daughters, 6 years old and 9 years old.
