Using Innovation to Make the World Better: Marcia LaFemina, Penn Globe

At nearly 150 years old, Penn Globe has both a fascinating history and an exciting future.

President and CEO, Marcia LaFemina, covered tons of ground with our host, Ari Santiago, in this fast-paced episode. They talked all about the innovations that have kept Penn Globe strong and steady despite their small stature in the lighting world.


Marcia told us all about their sustainability initiatives, refitting classic fixtures with current sustainable lighting sources, building new fixtures out of recycled materials, and fitting current light fixtures with wifi and surveillance    capability. All of this with some lighting education thrown in the mix!  

Marica's favorite business book:

Beautiful Swimmers, William W. Warner: Watermen, Crabs and the Chesapeake Bay - a unique choice for a business book, this Pulitzer Prize winner brings the humanity back into business
