This book is a must read for every person in the showroom lighting industry and interior design fields, and especially for entrepreneurs and aspiring leaders seeking a model for success in business.
Lighting the Way is the fascinating story of how Harry L. Gilham, Jr. started Georgia Lighting Company with little capital but tremendous vision and determination. He ultimately built the business into one of the largest and most innovative in its industry, searching out the work of artisans in Italy, Spain and other European countries. He led in establishing the Showroom Division of the American Lighting Association, served as its president and charter member of the Lighting Hall of Fame. He is a recipient of the Lighting Person of the Year Award.
In this highly readable Memoir, Gilham recounts his adventures as an officer aboard the USS Balduck during its tour in Haiphong Harbor and his friendship there with Dr. Tom Dooley; his early years in the lighting business; and how he grew Georgia Lighting from scratch to such a successful enterprise that it attracted the attention of home improvement giant Home Depot.
Gilham tells the inside story of what happened after Home Depot acquired Georgia Lighting and how the outcome could have been different.
