Kelly Carls

Specification Sales

Kelly’s path to the lighting industry started with an Engineering & Management degree from Clarkson University.  Joining the GE Supply training program provided a great framework for the sales path she would later pursue.  Kelly further deepened her experience base when she moved to NESCO National Accounts, servicing a number of large retail accounts.

With a growing interest in the design side of the business, Kelly made the transition to Specification Sales at the agency level in 2008. Within a few short years, Kelly has earned her LC, developed many meaningful relationships, and become an industry leading specification saleswoman.  As one of the founding partners of Illuminate in 2014, Kelly continues to elevate her ability to offer a full suite of services to her client base. Kelly’s experience in all facets of the lighting supply chain, her passion for solving problems and her personal attention to detail provides her customers with a distinctive advantage.

Outside of work, Kelly and her husband Kevin enjoy having fun with their daughters, Lyla & Grace.
