WAC Dedicates Office to Late Executive Leonard Schwartz


Port Washington, NY –  WAC Lighting Founder Tony Wang has announced the dedication of a main office in honor of the late executive Leonard M. Schwartz. The office will be called the “Leonard M. Schwartz Memorial Conference Room.”

According to Mr. Wang, the wall plaque reads, “One of the finest men we ever met. A gentleman in every sense of the word; he was very generous, kind and successful in his personal and professional life. Leonard was instrumental in helping build WAC into the industry leader it has become today. He always inspired people and had a great gift for seeing the best in everyone. We will sorely miss his patient empathy, fierce friendship, and generosity of spirit.”

Mr. Schwartz was employed by WAC for more than three decades, serving as Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Sales Representative and Consultant. Leonard enjoyed a long career in the lighting industry dating back to the late 1950s.
