Michael S. Howell


Michael has almost 30 years’ experience in the Lighting and Electrical Industry. He started out on the retail side, but made the transition to the distribution side in 1993. He was also the retail manager at the McU Sports Downtown store during a year away from the lighting industry in the early 2000’s. Michael has worked for electrical distributors, lighting manufacturers, as well as previously owning an electrical and lighting agency here in Boise. His goal for Northwest Lighting Alliance is simple: represent quality manufacturers and be the easiest agency to work with – the one customers choose to partner with.

Away from work he spends his time with his family, spending most weekends watching one or both of his teenage daughters play sports. He also plays golf and mountain bikes.
