Gale Singer, President of Circa Lighting

Gale Singer founded Circa Lighting in 1998 opening the first location in Savannah, Georgia with intention of a well edited lighting showroom where clients could shop in a boutique like atmosphere. 

Having made her start at Visual Comfort & Co., the leading manufacturer of decorative lighting founded by her brother, Andy Singer, Gale had a vision to streamline the lighting selection process.20 years later, Circa now has stores in 10 cities around the country along with a website offering a well edited collection of pieces designed by the most coveted

designers in the interior design industry backed by impeccable customer service. 

Singer has since expanded upon the approach Circa has established in order to broaden audience shopping for lighting who are still in need of high-end service along with an easy shopping experience. 

Clarkson Lighting is Singer’s newest online destination featuring a highly curated assortment of light fixtures and ceiling fans, spanning the broadest range of styles and prices. 

With the goal of providing the same level of service Circa Lighting customers have enjoyed for years, Clarkson Lighting is high-quality, beautifully designed and accessibly priced.

As President of Circa Lighting, Singer is overseeing the continued growth of the company in key markets remaining committed to beautiful design, and, above all, a brilliant customer experience.
