Chief Global Solution Manager – Digital Solutions for Commercial Building Services
Marcus has been passionate about innovating new solutions to solve the world’s water and climate challenges for more than a decade. He is a firm advocate for the role that the digitalization of the built environment plays in securing the future of our planet. As individuals in the Built Environment, we have a significant impact on every being on the planet. We are designing, building and operating the environment in which we live and the infrastructure that connects them; but we are also accountable for more than 40% of the world’s ongoing energy consumption. As a global industry, we have a tremendous responsibility to restore the wellbeing of our planet. Productivity and efficiency gains throughout the value chain have not exactly been stellar throughout the past few decades. Sure, improvements have been made, and a digitization of workflows within design, construction and operation has optimized within each silo, but when it comes to collaboration across disciplines and applying a holistic view of the full lifecycle of our environment, we still have a long way to go.
In his ‘day-job’ he is a Chief Global Solution Manager within Grundfos’ Commercial Building Services division responsible for a portfolio of IoT-enabled solutions improving the energy efficiency of buildings. On the side, he is the BILT’s European Chairman – and also serves on DBEI’s executive committee. He lives in Denmark with his partner and their two sons.
