LFI Searching for New Leadership as Rochelle Richardson Departs

International Market Centers (IMC) announced today that Rochelle Richardson has resigned her position as vice president of Lightfair International (LFI) to pursue other career interests. Richardson’s last day is Feb. 21, 2019.

Richardson joined LFI in 2007 and over her 12-year tenure has helped lead its continuing growth as the world’s largest annual lighting and design trade show and conference.

“Rochelle has made an indelible mark on the Lightfair business across every dimension of its trade show and conference offerings. She leaves the LFI global franchise well-positioned for sustained growth. We wish Rochelle well in her new endeavors,” says Robert Maricich, chairman and CEO of LFI managing partner IMC, Inc.

As Richardson’s departure approaches, IMC is initiating a search for new LFI leadership from within the lighting and design community and the trade show industry at large. LFI 2019 will be staged in Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania Convention Center from May 19—23, 2019.
