Chuck Davies, founder and CEO of the ADJ Group, announced that Toby Velazquez has been named president of ADJ, Elation and Acclaim Lighting. Velazquez, who joined the company shortly after it was started in 1985, has served the ADJ Group in a wide variety of capacities and has made critical contributions to its growth from a small business serving the mobile DJ market to an international leader in the lighting industry.

“Toby has been a key part of our company from its earliest days,” says Davies. “He’s demonstrated extraordinary talent and leadership qualities in every job he’s done, and his passion for excellence is second to none. Based on his abilities and track record, I’m extremely confident that he’s the right person to lead ADJ, Elation and Acclaim Lighting into the future.”

According to a company announcement, Velazquez has shepherded the development of many of ADJ’s innovative products over the past few years, including its LED fixtures, LED video panels and the industry’s first moving heads to use Philips’ Platinum MSR lamps.

“Our company has been built on innovation,” says Velazquez. “We’ve made it our mission to get to know our customers, understand their needs and create new affordable, user-friendly products that contribute to their success. This will continue to be our guiding philosophy, and we’ll continue to look for new ways to make us even better at implementing it. I welcome this opportunity, and I’m thankful to be surrounded by such a dedicated group of talented co-workers. “

Based in Los Angeles with European headquarters in Kerkrade, The Netherlands, the ADJ Group sells lighting throughout the world under the ADJ, Elation and Acclaim brands.
