Jay Rocavert appointed Vice President of Schneider Electric Buildings business unit

Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, today
announced the appointment of Jay Rocavert as Vice President for Schneider Electric’s Buildings Business in Australia.

Rocavert has over 20 years’ experience in working across the Buildings Services Technology industry and has a proven track record in building and managing high performance teams to transform customers’ businesses by increasing sustainable profitable growth.

“Customers are now facing increasing complexity across their facilities, with many systems, both disparate and integrated, gathering an ever increasing amount of data. However, the real challenge is knowing what to do with this data to achieve overarching business goals,” said Rocavert.

“My aim in this role is to educate customers on the importance of utilising data and revolutionise their experience in working with Schneider Electric. We want to act as a supportive partner to help our customers utilise intelligent data in order to make their buildings smart, to address their business efficiency, technology and financial challenges.”

Rocavert prides himself on his leadership skills with a wealth of experience in driving successful and committed teams. He also has a solid understanding and skillset in the technical aspects of Building Services, HVAC and critical energy management of smart and integrated connected facilities. 

His knowledge spans across multiple sectors including commercial, residential, education, health, IT, telecom and public construction projects, and this appointment places him in the perfect position to drive change.

Rocavert has played a critical role across Schneider Electric’s Buildings business since he joined the organisation back in 2008. Before joining, his previous roles included Client Services Manager (NSW) for TAC, as well as a Project Manager at Honeywell.

Rocavert replaces Gareth O’Reilly who has moved to a new role within Schneider Electric as Zone President and Managing Director for Australia & New Zealand.
