Steve Friedman brings over 40 years of national account lighting experience and knowledge coming over from the manufacturing side of the industry.
Prior to joining Hermitage in 2020, Steve was with Cree Lighting where he was a VP & Director of Strategic National Accounts for 7.5 years.

Steve has been working with Hermitage and the generations of the Fleischer family since the late 1980’s when they became his first national account distributor customer and this successful relationship has been maintained since. It seems fitting that this great partnership has now brought us together on Team Hermitage! Steve looks forward to further success on the distribution side of the business and the value of unlimited product offering that this opportunity will make available in servicing national account customers.
Funny fun fact about Steve; his first sale almost didn’t happen when as a young sales person his first meeting with purchasing manager from electrical contractor led to immediate order opportunity and need of a buy price for large quantity of 2x4’s when Steve replied, “Appreciate the opportunity for order however, I do not sell lumber.” He later found that the terminology used was the same as lay-in troffers and the rest as they say is history.
Steve attended Northern Illinois University where he played hockey. Steve resides in the north suburbs of Chicago along with his wife Mindee and has three children Cory, Ali (twins) and Spencer. Steve is also the grandfather of Leo, Ari and Grey.
