Johnson Controls appoints Michael Anderton to head Singapore Building Efficiency division
New leader to spur Johnson Controls' integrated solutions and systems in Singapore
SINGAPORE – (September 25, 2013) – Johnson Controls, the global leader in building technology and services, has appointed Michael Anderton to general manager and managing director of Building Efficiency in Singapore. A veteran with over 20 years of industry experience, Anderton will lead a team of over 600 professionals to deliver solutions for buildings to make them operationally and energy efficient, creating healthier and more productive environments. As the industry’s leading integrated smart green building systems, services and solutions provider, the Singapore operations under Anderton’s leadership is able to provide a comprehensive life-cycle approach, spanning planning and design, installation, integration, optimization and maintenance.
"With more than 100 years of track record in building technologies worldwide, Johnson Controls has become synonymous with smart green buildings.In line with the Singapore Government’s vision to green 80 percent of all buildings by 2030, our Singapore team has been helping customers reduce energy consumption in buildings by up to 40 percent. This makes good financial sense too as payback is typically less than five years. At Johnson Controls Singapore, we will continue to build on our core competencies and innovate on two key areas to enhance the solutions we deliver for customers – integration of different building systems and more in-depth analytics of a building’s operational and occupancy data. These will further improve building performance and energy efficiency,” said Anderton.
Anderton joined Johnson Controls in the United Kingdom in 1992 and has held positions of increasing responsibility in the organization, with technical, sales and operational leadership stints in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. Most recently Johnson Controls’ director of industrial refrigeration for Southeast Asia, Anderton has a proven track record in running large, complex businesses in both mature and developing markets.
