Jeff Jarvie founded Western Lighting in 1981. He came from a family background in the lighting rep industry. Through hard work over 35 years he has built strong, long lasting and loyal relationships with both the showrooms and manufactures alike. Which makes Western Lighting unique, in its very personal attention and customer care. Relationships are extremely important to our business and as a result so many have become like family to our agency.
He values the importance of actively being in “the field” and a strong presence in our customer’s showrooms. Also empowering them with the most up to date product knowledge through interactive showroom training meetings and has passed the importance of this onto his sub-reps as well. Sales samples are an important part of the training process whether conducting Designer CEU meetings or meeting with showroom personnel. This investment in carrying samples is always noted by the showrooms and sales managers. Showroom owners often note that anyone can conduct a meeting reading from a catalog or price sheet. With technical product the training needs to include hands on demonstrations to make the time productive. It is often noted that no other rep agency carries as many samples as Western Lighting Representatives.
Jeff has also pioneered successful programs such as ‘Excellence in Display’; to help our product displays stay clean, important and present in one of our biggest accounts, Lamps Plus.
