Reginald Cook

For the past twenty years, Reg Cook has been one of the most recognizable and reliable figures in the lighting retrofit industry. His knowledge of lighting solutions and logistics is unmatched. After several years working in aerospace and general contracting ventures, Reg founded National Energy Services (NES) in 1994. NES was a leader in implementing multi-facility, retail, medical, government and industrial retrofit programs. The corporation completed more than 100,000 individual energy retrofits under Reg’s guidance. After the acquisition of NES in 2010, Reg later served as a Vice President of Johnson Controls in their new Lighting Solutions division. Reg briefly left the lighting industry to pursue other construction opportunities as President of Hemma Concrete, a concrete contractor with $60m+ in annual construction volume. His passion for energy consulting quickly brought him back to lighting, and he added a new lighting-focused entity to the growing Hemma family. Reg holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Georgia State University and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from the University of Colorado Boulder. Reg is an Atlanta native and a married father of two college age children, who enjoys boating, golf, biking, and the outdoors.
