Steve Emberton has been appointed as WAGO’s first building automation manager, using his 30 years’ experience to boost the company’s presence and market share in the sector.
Steve held senior engineer, project and product manager roles at companies including Schneider Electric, Laing O’Rourke, Integrated BMS and BG Controls, during which he was exposed to WAGO products.
”My experience and familiarity with WAGO’s offering will help identify more closely with customer demands and how best to address them,” says Steve. His specialist disciplines include building controls, energy monitoring, access control, CCTV and fire management.
He has recently worked on developments including 122 Leadenhall Street, otherwise known as the Cheesegrater, in London. As principal engineer, Emberton’s responsibilities included the creation of the building management system (BMS) including its description of operation, design of 200 BMS control panels, testing of third party interfaces, and writing of all BMS software and graphics. Other notable projects include Southmead Hospital Bristol, The Crick Medical Research Institute in London and the Victoria Centre in Nottingham.
Steve continues: “This is a great opportunity to help position WAGO at the vanguard in what is a dynamic, fast-paced and constantly evolving industry. I am looking forward to using my extensive experience within the Building Industry in understanding the internal and external challenges faced by clients, and implementing smart building controls that will help contribute towards more efficient building performance."
