Jake Ward

President & CEO

As the President and CEO of LIT Lighting Solutions, Jake plays an active role in overseeing the go-to-market and sales strategies of the company. Prior to finding his passion in lighting, Jake assisted in building a number of tech startups where he learned the importance of customer experience and developed an appreciation of the customer journey. Jake’s ability to identify and understand how micro-moments can either positively or negatively affect brand loyalty and business growth later became the foundation in creating LIT Lighting Solutions. In his spare time, Jake enjoys grilling, experiencing local breweries, classic cars, and during the summer, can be found on a local lake cruising in Bob Seger’s former ski boat (yes, that Bob Seger).
