Since day one he has hit the ground running, opening new paths for us to deliver our solutions to clients and partners in the D.C. region and beyond. We are thrilled to have him as part of the Animated Insights team.”

In this role, Sam will be responsible for increasing brand awareness, expanding customer engagement as well as leading all go-to-market activities in the D.C. market. He will work with customers, providing strategies through the AI: Twin digital twin platform to help solve efficiency and sustainability issues.

Sam specializes in leveraging utility incentive programs to reduce out-of-pocket costs for clients.

Sam’s background includes over 14 years of experience working directly with building owners and operators, identifying cost-effective ways to reduce energy consumption, increase tenant comfort, and improve indoor air quality. He started his career in property & facilities management, working in the private sector operations department of the Ronald Reagan Building a block from the White House. In 2014, he transitioned into the field of energy management, building automation system sales, and cloud-based software solutions, specializing in the optimization of buildings through precise control.

“I love working with property owners and building engineers to lower operating expenses and increase asset value. More importantly, I help customers explore ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to mitigate global climate change,” said Sam.
