Renna, who will report to GE Lighting president & CEO Maryrose Sylvester, succeeds Phil Marshall who has led GE Lighting Europe, Middle East & Africa, since 2008. Marshall has left GE Lighting to pursue a position outside of the company.


“Agostino Renna's experience, leadership and significant sales and marketing background make him an outstanding person to continue the transformation of the Lighting business in the region," says GE Lighting president & CEO Maryrose Sylvester. “Agostino has demonstrated outstanding management qualities and has the ability to sharpen our strategic focus to lead GE Lighting Europe, Middle East & Africa to achieve strong, sustained growth in 2013 and beyond.


Renna most recently was Vice President, Growth & Market Strategy for GE-Canada with responsibility for the long term growth and market positioning of all GE's businesses in Canada.


Prior to joining GE, Renna spent 14 years at Johnson Controls Inc., where he worked in Canada, the US and Europe. He held leadership roles in sales, marketing, strategy and general management culminating with a position leading Johnson Controls' Energy Solutions division for Europe, the Middle East and Africa based in Brussels, Belgium.


Renna was born in Montreal, Quebec and holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering from McGill University. He speaks 4 languages fluently.


He is a regular speaker at conferences and roundtables that focus on addressing global energy challenges. While in Belgium, Renna was an Executive in Residence at the Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School, where, in his lectures, he brought a strong practioner's perspective to the topics of sales, marketing, strategy and leadership.




AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
