Philips Lumileds Recognized as Illumineer of the Year

The night of February 25, 2015 was a celebration of innovation in the LED and solid-state lighting (SSL) industry sectors with the awarding of the LEDs Magazine Sapphire Awards.

Being named Illumineer of the Year continues an impressive streak of both recognition and breakthroughs for Lumileds.  In addition to this award, Lumileds recently won a prestigious LFI Innovation Award, introduced the world’s first hot color targeted LEDs, and announced the world’s first chip-scale packaged LED that can be directly surface mount reflowed onto a luminaire board. LUXEON CoB with CrispWhite Technology is another quality of light breakthrough in the Lumileds portfolio.

“This is extraordinary validation of the tremendous work we have been doing here at Lumileds. I could not be more proud of our entire team. 2014 was a historically good year for Lumileds – and with all the exciting changes, advancements and innovations planned for 2015, I am pleased to say, we are just getting started!” Pierre-Yves Lesaicherre, CEO, Philips Lumileds.

CrispWhite is a great example of how LED technology will take the lighting industry to new heights, delivering a feature set in SSL products that the industry could never achieve with incandescent, halogen, or ceramic-metal-halide (CMH) sources.” said Maury Wright, Editor in Chief, LEDs Magazine and Illumination in Focus.

The Illumineer of the Year crown went to the team of Eric Senders, Bob Zona, Rene Helbing, Mushfeque Manzur, and Catherine Othick from Philips Lumileds for their work on LUXEON CoB (Chip-on-Board) LED with CrispWhite Technology.

“CrispWhite really delivers the light quality that retailers have been seeking for some time,” said Eric Senders, Product Line Director, Philips Lumileds.
