Schneider Electric announces Pelco President and CEO Dean Meyer has been promoted to the new position of executive vice president of the firm’s Buildings Business.
Meyer is now responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Buildings Business, one of the company’s five global businesses. He will report directly to Chris Curtis, who is president and CEO of Schneider Electric Buildings Business.
“Dean has done an outstanding job leading our Pelco organization, and with his leadership I’m confident we will execute on the bold growth agenda we have for our Buildings Business,” Curtis says. “Pelco is an important part of this business and with Dean’s background we will take advantage of the many opportunities we have to strengthen and grow Pelco and more closely align Pelco with our overall organization.”
Although Meyers’ former position will not be replaced, his new role will not affect Pelco’s business model in any way, according to the company. Pelco, Meyers states, remains steadfastly committed to its existing specialized sales channels. Pelco products, he says, will now have more visibility and influence within the Schneider Electric Buildings Business.
“These changes certainly will not affect who Pelco is, nor will they affect Pelco’s commitment to our customers. Pelco customer service is legendary, and the entire organization will benefit from our closer interaction,” Meyers says.
