John Borrelli ~ Principal/Quotations & Project Administration Manager
John co-purchased SeaTac Lighting & Controls in February 2006 with his brother Jim. Graduating in ’87, he was not interested in college but rather in jump-starting his career by going straight into distribution. Those 15 years taught him a lot, from how to sweep floors to accounting, quotes, outside sales, and everything in between. John had the amazingly good fortune of working with some of the most knowledgeable, hard working, successful individuals in our market as his teachers. The 9/11 tragedy drove John to the realization that he needed follow his dream of owning the largest lighting agency in the Pacific Northwest. Working as a manager for three years at the largest local agency gave him the experience needed to take over the smallest agency (SeaTac Lighting) and build it up into what it is today. The hard work he put in through the years provided the additional education, opportunities, and relationships that established John as one of the leaders in the lighting industry. John puts much of his energy into growing the business and ensuring that our customers and manufacturers are well taken care of at all times. He works to maintain a positive work environment with healthy options. John leads with a win/win, teamwork approach. SeaTac Lighting strives on using a TEAM philosophy to manage projects, improving communication and forging closer working relationships between all of our manufacturers, distributors, and contractors.
