Matthew Foley, P.E., has been part of the building automation industry since 2006. He got his start doing commissioning and retro-commissioning as a project engineer with EMC Engineers and meandered through the industry to specialize in integration projects and controls upgrade projects for government clients both inside and outside the U.S. During this time, he earned his certification as a professional engineer in the state of North Carolina for control systems engineering. Later, he worked as a sales support engineer for Distech Controls, helping factory authorized system integrators use best practices with building automation products. He currently works as the director of energy services and technology for CMS Controls, a provider for building automation projects in the Southeastern U.S. When he’s not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife and their baby girl and tinkering with new computer programming languages.
