The Myriad Team

Myriad is a team. We have some of the best and brightest professionals in our industry. It is our pleasure to exceed your expectations.

Bob Martin - Principal
I started Myriad in 2006 to bring energy efficient lighting and control products to market. I believed technology was going to change the industry and allow new entrants into the market. It was becoming clear that "energy" will play a large role in lighting decisions. Myriad which essentially means "countless or endless" seemed like the perfect name for this new organization focused not on the traditional, but on the new. I am proud of our team, grateful to our Manufacturers and Customers, and look forward to many more years of great success serving our partners.
Andy Brooks - Outside Sales
I’ve spent my entire career in the lighting and controls business in central Ohio serving the specification, contractor and distributor markets since 86’. I enjoy working with customers to develop value add solutions in a timely, cost effective manner. I have 2 college grads living in NYC and 2 still at home. We enjoy summer time up north, and winter time in Cabo. The rest of my free time is spent touring the countryside on my Harley with friends. LTR - RTL
Drew Schulte - Outside Sales
I began my career 18yrs ago as a GE Lighting co-op through the University Of Cincinnati’s College of Business program. Since then, I’ve worked in the Cincinnati, Indianapolis, and Albuquerque C&I markets and most recently spent the last 6yrs as an outside sales person in the Columbus, Ohio lighting market. When not focused on providing the best service to my customer base, I enjoy Sporting Clays and spending time with my beautiful family.
Kevin Blake - Outside Sales
I have joined Myriad Energy Solutions of Columbus after 20 years in the lighting agency business. Fifteen of those years as an owner of Contract Lighting. My experience there has allowed me to focus on the specification community assisting in all aspects of lighting design and lighting controls solutions. My extensive knowledge in the lighting application software and controls configuration software allows me to assist our clientele in every aspect of the job process.
Prior to that I served the construction industry as a consulting engineer and lighting designer at Korda / Nemeth Engineering. I hold an Electrical Engineering degree from Iowa State University and LEED AP credentials. My experience over those 4 years included a wide variety projects that allow me to share real world experiences and applications to all of my customers.
I am a Wisconsin native, enjoy snow skiing, water skiing and anything on a beach. I have two beautiful daughters, a step-son and a beautiful grand-daughter. Go Packers!
Jason Donnellon - General Manager
Previously an owner of Contract Lighting Ltd., we merged our business into Myriad Energy Solutions of Columbus in February 2018. We saw value in the strength of combining resources and improving our operational excellence. CLL was successful for 15 years and prior to that I worked with the local Eaton and Acuity rep agencies. I have a degree in Electrical Engineering from OU and spent several years as a local consulting engineer. I look forward to building the new company by being customer centric, pursuing new vertical markets and strategizing with our customers and manufacturers to ensure mutual success.
Mary Fey – Quotes
I have been in the lighting industry for 25 years and have been full circle in the lighting world, going from an agency to a manufacturer to a distributor and back again. I have been involved in all aspects of the industry from customer service, quotes, project management and commission reconciliation.
My passions include working out, running, watching the Cleveland Indians & THE OSU Buckeyes with my husband Patrick. We also enjoy our highly exceptional dog, a Scottish Terrier appropriately named Griffin.
Brigid Lare - Customer Service & Project Coordinator
Time sure flies, I have been in customer service on the rep side of the lighting industry for nearly 30 years. It has been great to work with the customers in Columbus. We have three grown children and six awesome grandchildren. During the summer we enjoy camping and motorcycle rides (No driving for me! I ride on the back.) Working with Myriad is an exciting change for me.
Caroline Koethke - Project Coordinator
I am excited to have joined the Myriad Energy Solution – Columbus Branch. I began my lighting career three years ago where my main role was and still is putting together all the fixture submittals packages, reconciling commission and customer service duties to name a few. I am looking forward to supporting the inside sales team as a project manager with the Myriad team and building a stronger larger Columbus territory.
I have been blessed with three wonderful boys, who have taken me all over the country with their activities and schooling. All I can say is: Go Buckeyes, Go Citadel and Go Camden!!!
