They were working together and fueling new ways to extend the value of our building systems, while exploring the best of breed in change and innovation.

What do young BAS professionals talk about when they are not texting or using the latest forms of communication that don’t involve actual verbal communication? To find out we hooked up 2014 Young Guns Rob Allen and Brad White with a good Skype connection and turned the recorder on.
Among other things, Rob and Brad discuss the upcoming ControlTrends Awards and what it means to be a Young Gun and why it’s so very important for our industry. See the next Young Gun class at the 2015 Control Trends Awards Sunday January 24th at 6:30pm at The Hard Rock Live @ Universal Studios.
All setup and no one to chat with…that is until my Skype rings and it is the one and only Mike Marston, EASY IO’s hard working Controls exec, fresh off the slopes of a day skiing in Aspen. So of course I had to hit the record button. Among other things, Mike gives me an update on a new business venture, how he is preparing for the 2015 ControlTrends Awards, and why the EASY IO Beast from the EAST is the BAS controller most likely to make a guest appearance on Miami Vice.
