What year did you start at Distech Controls?
What and where did you study?
What are a few highlights from your career thus far?
I grew up in this industry as pneumatics was starting to be replaced by DDC systems, DOS was being replaced with multi-tasking operating systems, and proprietary systems were being traded for open systems. I was able to work on some of the most intelligent buildings in the USA and integrate multiple systems together before standards were available. I was privileged to be a voting member of the ASHRAE BACnet committee for 4 years as the standard was being developed for the market. I am now working for the company leading the industry in IP based BAS systems and setting the example that others are following as we leverage technology to connect buildings and people together for optimized efficiency.
