CIV LED Lighting Solutions was formed in 2013 to provide turn-key LED lighting upgrades. Founder Jim Oxley started the business as a second career to help and benefit business owners with energy-efficiency.
Jim had a very successful in Sales, Sales Management, and recruiting with a financial service firm for over 35 years. In 2010, Jim stepped away due to health reasons along with dealing tragic family event of his youngest daughter passing away in an apartment in 2007.
In starting CIV LED he found a lot of satisfaction in delivering lighting upgrades; however, he was challenged with taking care of all aspects of the business. He partnered with a gentleman that had more experience but was to focus on “only profits” to him and not the customer experience.
In 2017 he parted ways with his partner and started running the business and all aspects of the business. Since this time CIV LED has completed over 170 projects utilizing the highest quality contractors and developing relationships with distributors to provide quality products with competitive pricing.
As we enter 2022, he estimates that sales will be over 55 projects totaling approximately $ 1.6 million in revenue. He feels this has been enhanced by word of mouth, direct marketing outreach and the adoption of Retrolux auditing software.
With growth continuing every year Jim is still involved in all areas of the business from sales to operations. He targets ROI and quality of lighting ahead of all other aspects understanding that the projects must be a win-win-win approach.
