It’s been almost 8 years that I’ve been helping companies become “best-run businesses”. The journey has been amazing and I’ve witnessed a dramatic transformation where SAP now provides world-class solutions to companies of all sizes; from the biggest in the world to the 20-person firm right down the street.
Along that journey there was always a common theme – energy. We talk a lot about sustainability these days regardless of a companies’ sector because energy is universal. It’s the lifeblood of all companies but even more than that, it’s the lifeblood of the planet. As I look at my three sons and I read article after article about the energy the world requires, I often wonder where it will come from for the next generation.
Through that process I’ve realized the full power of energy (no pun intended). So I’ve made a change, an exciting change, to join the energy sector and evolve from helping businesses “run better” to trying to make the world a better place. From green buildings to smart cities and the energy revolution that is about to take place in our own homes, I’m beyond excited to join the team at Schneider-Electric. It’s a world leader in energy management and recognized as one of the most sustainable companies on the planet.
We’re witnessing the very beginning of an entirely new transformation, because guess what?
Energy is everywhere.
Most of us look at a building or our homes and we see energy being consumed. The team at Schneider-Electric looks at those same structures and they see energy being produced. Buildings are in constant motion, they sit in the sun, the wind, they collect water and every step of the way energy is created. Collecting this energy and allowing every structure to become energy neutral is the passion of a lifetime and I’m delighted to now be at the forefront of the ride! (and of course, Schneider-Electric is also an SAP customer, so I still get to be inside a best-run business). 😉
So here’s to professional change, new beginnings and making the most of our planet’s precious resources.
