About Us

Alan Schutz -

Having been a manufacturer's representative in New Jersey and New York for almost 40 years, representing over 100 manufacturer's I have a great insight to what my vendors, distributors and users want from a partner.   I have lived by the philosophy that every order and project must be favorable for all of the people involved.  If our vendors and distributors succeed, we as their representatives will flourish.  
In 1979 I began my career in the industry as an inside salesman for 2 years.  I took pride in delivering fast and reliable information on new quotes and open orders in house. 
In 1981 I began my outside sales role covering Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island, as well as a couple of large distributors in NJ.  By 1983 I was in NJ full time, calling on distributors, contractors and end users in the central and northern part of the state. 
Over the years, I have found a few markets that I enjoy working in and in my role at Ascend Sales & Marketing, they will be my focus. 

Special thanks to my mentor Pat Burgoyne.

Robert Horvath -

I started my lighting career in 2000 as a direct sales representative covering the NJ market with responsibility calling on all electrical wholesalers and end users in the Northeast.

Having worked in the lighting industry for almost 20 years as a direct sales representative for the largest lighting manufacturer in the world, I have a great insight to what my distributors and end users want from a manufacturer's representative.  I believe every project, order and opportunity in the lighting industry deserves to be worked on with honesty and integrity.  The solutions will be the very best for all of those involved.

I look forward on continuing my service to the lighting and electrical industries.
