KMC Controls, a leader in building automation systems, today announced that Richard Newberry, Strategic Advisor to KMC’s Board of Directors, has been appointed to the advisory council of Realcomm IBCon’s Smart Building Integrator Summit. KMC is a platinum-level sponsor of the bi-annual Realcomm IBCon conference, which will be held at the Marriott Rivercenter in San Antonio, Texas from June 9th through June 10th, 2015.
The pre-conference Integrator Summit will be held at the Marriott Rivercenter on June 8th from 1:00-6:00pm and will be open to system integrators and consultants from HVAC, IT, AV, Multimedia, Digital Signage, Lighting, Security and Industrial controls who are ready to go to the next level in intelligent building design and delivery.
Newberry, formerly President and CEO at KMC, has led corporate development, new product innovation, and competitive strategy for the company since 2014. With more than 30 years of executive and general management experience in energy, oil and gas, technology manufacturing, and building automation segments, Newberry applies a total solution view to guiding innovation and forging strategic partnerships with industry-leading technology firms. He currently leads KMC’s collaboration with Silicon Valley tech giants developing a revolutionary solution for connecting building automation systems to the Internet of Things.
The building automation industry is rapidly evolving and technology is driving that transformation. It has evolved from a single building/one system approach to an integrated, interoperable strategy involving not only buildings, but also portfolios, campuses and cities. IBcon has selected several influential industry executives to assist in the development of the program and to lead the Smart Building Integrator Summit Advisory Council. The Advisors act as thought leaders, assisting in the identification of the most critical issues impacting the industry and then setting goals and objectives for the Summit.
KMC is developing a complete IoT Platform for building automation that forms an end-to-end solution, from sensors and controllers (edge devices) to cloud-based remote management applications. Remote visualization and control are enabled via a cloud-hosted, mobile application based architecture with secure data access.
KMC will be exhibiting several new solutions in the KMC Controls booth at IBCon from June 9th through June 10th, 2015. Parties interested in seeing the demonstration and meeting with the development team may contact KMC Controls at www.kmccontrols.com.
