The current president of its global data center solutions department, Todd Grabowski, will head up the new organization, reporting directly to CEO and chairman George Oliver.

Oliver said: “Todd and his team will prioritize offering our full suite of smart building technologies - coupling our unique set of energy-efficient, sustainable, and safe data center solutions with unmatched service - to meet increasing demand and drive Johnson Controls’ continued growth and value creation.”

Grabowski added: “Solving customer problems today and in the future is what we do best at Johnson Controls. We have optimized our investments and solutions to ensure we are uniquely qualified to provide the differentiated outcomes data center customers need and expect from an industry leader like Johnson Controls.”

Grabowski has more than 30 years of experience at Johnson Controls, most recently as vice president and general manager of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.

Johnson Controls provides and deploys data center solutions across more than 150 countries. The company acquired Norwegian heat pump provider Hybrid Energy in January last year.
