Energy Automation Systems gets new government relations man

From a press release:

Matthew Fox, who has extensive experience working with the federal government in communications and other technical projects, has been named director of marketing and senior program manager for Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI). In this role he will demonstrate to the U.S. government and state and local governments how EASI can save taxpayer dollars by cutting energy use and electricity costs between 10 and 30 percent.

Fox will also assist EASI’s network of affiliate dealers on working with government agencies. EASI has developed 11 energy conservation and cost reduction technologies in use by thousands of customers in the U.S. and more than 60 foreign countries.

“Matthew Fox has an impressive professional history,” said Joe Merlo, EASI founder and chief executive officer. “He understood in an instant how Energy Automation Systems can save taxpayer dollars, improve government operations and make an important environmental contribution.

“Individually each of these is important. Combined they make a strong case for how governments at the local, state and national levels can immediately reduce their energy costs. It’s a message Matthew will be taking to them,” Merlo added.

Positions Fox has held in his career include working on communications and technical projects with Department of the Treasury; National Institutes of Health; U.S. Census Bureau and other government departments and agencies.

He has lived for extended periods of time in Holland, Belgium, Germany and Alaska while working on a variety of assignments.

Among other projects, Fox had oversight and project management of a $12 million specialized modular power system for a major national defense agency.

Fox, 51, studied political science, computer science and economics at York University in Toronto, Canada, and is a BICSI Registered Communications Distribution Designer.
