“Optimising building performance to improve safety and enhance comfort while making them more sustainable is at the forefront of the digital transformation,“ said James Johnson, managing director at IoT Breakthrough. “Under Mr. Oliver’s leadership, Johnson Controls is a leading force in making buildings safer, more comfortable, more efficient, and ultimately, more sustainable. Congratulations to Mr. Oliver for being our 2022 ‘IoT Company CEO of the Year.’”

“I’m incredibly honoured to receive this recognition from IoT Breakthrough. It should go without saying that this award belongs to the entire Johnson Controls team.
