Jon Olson

In the second quarter, Schneider Electric, the energy management and automation solutions multinational, outdid most of the competition with its automation business, thanks in part to the work of Olson, who was appointed as senior vice president of Process Automation for the Americas in 2017. A graduate of Miami University, the former ABB executive has helped leverage the French company’s portfolio of existing tools from an office in Houston. Most recently, the company debuted a new version of EcoStruxure, its cloud-based enterprise software platform, with new external reporting features, an update that will allow clients to stay compliant with environmental standards.
