John Cabri brings more than 20 years of leadership experience and demonstrated success in scaling revenue operations. A few that we have spoken to suggest this key hire shows the emerging significance of light and design powered by smart technology.

Lellan provides us with extraordinary lighting enhancements and options for our clients.

The intersection of light, design and smart technology just got more interesting as Lellan, Inc. announced that it has hired Silicon Valley veteran John Cabri. The former 6Connex CEO will lead all-revenue impacting functions for the company (sales, marketing, business development, customer success and support). His goal is to ensure that every client engagement produces unparalleled results, both aesthetically and on the business side. This is a move that shows the significance of lighting and design in the age of the internet.

Lellan is pushing the boundaries of light, design and technology. The company provides a unique and dynamic approach to colored lighting controllability that enables designers, architects, and artists to showcase lighting in unique ways. "Lellan provides us [the designer community] extraordinary lighting enhancements and options for our clients," noted one designer with whom we spoke. In addition, the company is poised to reduce the complexity struggle often associated with current offerings through recent patent filings.

"I weighed several strong options, but chose to join Lellan because the founders are incredibly talented and I knew I could help guide the company through this exciting time of growth," said Cabri. Lellan’s addressable market is worth nearly $1.4 billion and growing according to a McKinsey report. It’s that market opportunity that Cabri sees opening up and a big reason he joined the company.

"Our product is well-positioned to take advantage of the growing demand and market opportunity for dynamic light. In our conversations with several hundred companies and individuals, the increasing importance of design, agility and innovation are seen as critical for continued success. Initial interest and demand for our DigitalCanvas is growing quickly" said Richard Wimmer, Lellan CEO & Co-founder, “and this is where John Cabri's solid track record of leading customer-facing teams through rapid 'growth mode' will prove invaluable."
