Xenian Pty Ltd, a renowned provider of high-end front-of-house architectural lighting solutions, has announced the appointment of Georgie Torrens as its new interim CEO.
With an impressive background in global business operations and a fervour for pushing the boundaries of architectural lighting, interim CEO Georgie Torrens is set to lead Xenian into a new era of innovation and expansion.
Xenian continues to make significant strides in the industry, offering top-tier front-of-house architectural lighting solutions guided by its in-house technical design and programming team. By the end of this year, Xenian will have contributed to over 2500 diverse projects across Australia, New Zealand, South-East Asia, and the Middle East.
Torrens expressed her enthusiasm for joining Xenian and being part of its remarkable journey.
“With my extensive global experience, I am inspired by our reach and the opportunities to connect with clients and partners worldwide. I look forward to understanding how they utilise Xenian’s products to bring their creative visions to life,” she says.
Torrens acknowledges the invaluable contributions of the late Rick Cale, the founder of Xenian, whose dedication to the lighting industry and support for lighting designers continues to guide and inspire the Xenian team. While Torrens steps into the role without Rick’s direct guidance, the team of experts at Xenian remains committed to collaboration and listening to those who have contributed to the company’s success.
The decision to join Xenian was an easy one for Torrens, driven by the tremendous market opportunity, global partnerships and exceptional brands represented by the company, including Color Konetics, Ecosense, and Linea Lights, among others. With a background in building a global industrial design firm over the past two decades, Torrens’s experience in manufacturing and delivering bespoke products to over 130 countries positions her well to lead the company through the next phase.
Having developed an appreciation for the power of lighting during her work with Neoz Lighting, Torrens is dedicated to bringing that same passion to Xenian. She is committed to continuing the global search for the latest technology, offering high-quality products for architectural lighting, and providing exceptional services to support client success.
“We are excited about the future of Xenian and the opportunities that lie ahead,” adds Torrens.
“I would like to express my gratitude to all our stakeholders for their support, and I eagerly anticipate personal meetings with many of my industry peers in the coming weeks and months.”
