Founder and CEO, Ember
Clay Alexander is an American inventor and serial entrepreneur who holds over 100 patents worldwide and is the inventor of General Electric's LED light bulb, the GE Infusion™.
He started his first company, Radiance Lightworks, in 1999 at the age of 23. Radiance is now 18 years old and has become one of the top lighting design agencies in the country, boasting an extensive client list which includes Universal Studios, Mattel and 20th Century Fox.
Alexander formed his second company, Journée Lighting, in 2005 and created the world's first LED track light. He scaled Journée to be one of the most respected brands in LED lighting, and sold the company a decade later to EcoSense Lighting.
In 2010, Alexander founded Ember, a design-led temperature control brand which is creating a new category of consumer products. Since launch, Ember has been extremely well received in the market, with strong sales that have consistently outperformed forecasts, as well as extensive media coverage. Ember is blazing the path to be the next global household brand.
