Growth Brings New Responsibilities To The Enerliance Team While New Hires Bring Additional Experience To The Table

Wednesday, August 7, 2013

Following the opening of our new headquarters facility in February, we continue to position Enerliance for rapid expansion by growing our team of professionals.

Experts in building automation, HVAC, energy solutions and product development have joined us at a pivotal time, as we shift from research and development to marketing and distribution of our LOBOS building efficiency and demand response platform nationwide.

During this time of rapid growth, enhancing the LOBOS system while maintaining customer satisfaction remain our key objectives. We are confident that the latest additions to our team will help us continue to meet those goals.

Several Enerliance veterans have accepted new levels of responsibility:

John_GrussJohn Gruss has been named Vice President and General Manager of the Enerliance Systems Integration Group.  John was most recently general manager for Honeywell’s Southern California operations and brought more than 30 years of HVAC and controls industry experience to Enerliance when he joined us in August 2012.

“It was an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of something that I think will be really beneficial to the energy industry,” John said.During John’s career, he has managed the sales and installation of hundreds of building automation systems.  He now supports the addition of LOBOS intelligence to many of the very same sites, providing the opportunity for clients to benefit from his experience, hands-on knowledge and understanding of how buildings and mechanical equipment operate.

“It’s truly full circle to be involved in the original installation and come back to add LOBOS intelligence to the building automation system 20 years later,” John said.

Franz_GeorgesFranz Gorges, Director of Product Development, has an extensive background in building automation and controls.  Franz began working with Enerliance in 2008 and was literally the first employee of the company.  He has been instrumental in converting the original LOBOS sequences into software code and designing the next generation of the software in JAVA as LOBOS migrated to the Niagara platform.

“I’m looking forward to developing the latest and greatest LOBOS system by incorporating customer feedback into our revisions and adding new features as we continue to evolve and improve the product,” Franz said.

Meet the latest additions to the Enerliance team:

Kevin_TockKevin Tock, Vice President of Product Development and Support, specialized in automating petrochemical plants, power plants and other industrial buildings before coming to Enerliance. He has many years of experience helping start-ups like Enerliance convert project-based software into products and successfully launching them into the market.

“The fact that Enerliance has had so many successful LOBOS installations means that we can focus on surrounding the core software with all of the documentation, testing, support and quality necessary to be deployed by our channel partners,” Kevin said. “This is the final step in the evolution from a custom solution to a truly scalable software product.”

Greg_BairGreg Bair, Executive Project Manager, has spent 25 years in the energy efficiency industry working in roles ranging from facility service Business Development to Vice President, Demand Side Services for a national energy solutions provider.  .

“I look forward to applying my experience with national portfolio project rollouts to LOBOS projects as we grow,” Greg said.

Greg also hopes that his knowledge of how different utilities and energy incentive programs operate in different parts of the country can be used to benefit Enerliance clients.

Greyson_WayerGreyson Wayer, a finance major and energy minor from University of Notre Dame, accepted a summer internship at Enerliance because he wanted to gain perspective on the building efficiency industry.

“In the next 20 years, whether we’re building new buildings or renovating the ones we already have, this is going to be a huge industry,” Greyson said.

During his time with us, Greyson is applying his database expertise to migrate multiple Excel based data sets into a single database environment to speed processes and make information more timely, accessible and accurate.
