The Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA) board of directors has this month announced the appointment of Gerry Cellucci of Yorkland Controls Limited to the CABA board.
As a principal and vice president of Yorkland Controls Limited, the largest controls systems distributor in Canada, Cellucci has led the growth of the “parts and smarts” distribution business, which focuses on education and developing the controls and integration business primarily through channel partners, as reckoned by a June 6 statement from CABA.
“The vision of Yorkland Controls and CABA are in sync -- both focus on the future as we incorporate smart building technology and engage channel partners,” said Cellucci. “I look forward to our partnership and the opportunity to work with industry thought leaders for the sustained health of occupants and our environment.”
A professional engineer in Ontario, Cellucci is the past chair of the Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Institute and sits on several Yorkland Controls vendor advisory committees. He also enjoys volunteering as a controls instructor for local trade union technicians.
“Gerry Cellucci brings extensive knowledge of the components, systems, and overall solutions behind intelligent buildings,” said Greg Walker, CEO of CABA. “We’re looking forward to this collaboration that will have many benefits for our member organizations.”
