William Pino Miami

An alumnus of the University of Costa Rica, longtime Miami resident William Pino studied electrical engineering and physics. After graduating in 1975, he moved to the United States. William Pino began his career as a vice president, outside sales representative, and manager of Power & Lighting Systems, Inc. In that position, which he held from 1981 to 1995, he helped grow the company from $4 million in annual sales to $20 million. He concurrently served from 1983 to 1991 as vice president of engineering at Columbia Engineering in Miami. There, he was directly responsible for the design of four large sugar mills in the Dominican Republic and Mexico.

In 1995, Mr. Pino founded Municipal Lighting Systems, Inc., a firm dedicated to producing innovative, effective lighting solutions for the municipal and outdoor lighting markets. From 1995 to 2016, he built the company into the largest outdoor lighting supplier in Florida with annual revenue of more than $20 million. In 2000, he founded Main Street Engineering, Inc., which provided parallel electrical engineering and consulting services for major outdoor lighting projects.

Subsequently working on Miami International Airport, the port of Miami, and other major projects, he has emphasized environmentally friendly design that protects turtle habitats and reduces light pollution. Since 2010, Mr. Pino has served as the president of Florida Lighting & Traffic, Inc. The company has since become one of the top three traffic-signal firms in Florida, with $8 million in annual sales.
