David Raber Joins California Lighting Sales

David Raber recently joined California Lightning Sales and LSI Industries as a specification sales consultant for Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties.

Raber has been a fixture in lighting sales on the Central Coast for 45 years. He began his career when his family moved to Santa Barbara in 1955 and opened an electrical wholesale business. In 1964, Raber started a factory lighting agency that grew to 15 employees. The business was closed in 1992, and Raber turned his attention to consulting. Now, at 75, Raber is still going strong, working every day and keeping current on all the latest technology in energy-efficient lighting fixtures and controls.

“I feel great, certainly enjoy what I do and as long as working doesn’t interfere with my morning visit to Starbucks, at 75 I’m good for at least another five years,” Raber said. “After that I might just go for another five.”

Founded in 1967, California Lighting Sales is Southern California’s leading architectural and commercial lighting sales agency, representing many of the industry’s most innovative lighting fixtures and control systems manufacturers.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
