Schneider Electric announced that Pelco president and CEO, Dean Meyer has been promoted to the new position of executive vice president, Buildings Business, one of the company’s five global businesses. He is now responsible for the day-to-day operations of Buildings and reports directly to Chris Curtis, president and CEO, Schneider Electric Buildings Business.

“Dean has done an outstanding job leading our Pelco organization, and with his leadership I’m confident we will execute on the bold growth agenda we have for our Buildings Business,” said Curtis. “Pelco is an important part of this business and with Dean’s background we will take advantage of the many opportunities we have to strengthen and grow Pelco and more closely align Pelco with our overall organization.”

Meyer stated that Pelco remains 100 percent committed to its existing specialized sales channels (independent sales representatives, dealers, distributors, and all resellers remain the same), and that this does not affect the Pelco business model in any way. With Pelco's closer alignment to the Buildings Business, there are no plans to replace Meyer's former position.

"I am excited about the opportunity to help lead our organization and further our ambition – especially during a time when our business and solutions could not be more relevant to the world’s most critical concerns around energy, security and business performance," said Meyer. "We are proud of the fact that Pelco products will play a key role in achieving this vision."
