I’m excited for the addition of two new product managers this quarter to NEEA’s Technology and Product Management team. Noe Contreras joined NEEA as a Senior Product Manager focused on natural gas products including the gas heat pump water heater, combi system and roof top units. Noe has strong product manager experience in industrial air compressors, ball bearings, and other automotive products. He currently resides in Indiana but will join us in Portland once we move to our new offices.
Nicky Dunbar joined NEEA as a Product Manager focused on motor driven systems, water heaters, and HVAC. Nicky has a master’s degree in mechanical engineering and is a licensed professional engineer in Oregon and Washington. While working on her engineering degree, Nicky interned with NEEA in 2014 and 2015. We are glad to have her back.
Please join me in welcoming Noe and Nicky to NEEA, and don’t hesitate to connect with them if you have questions about natural gas or one of the other products they support.
We are also looking for large commercial buildings for a field study of a machine learning (ML) control product from BrainboxAI. Please contact me or John Jennings if you know of building owners who might be interested in a low touch field study. The ideal buildings would be mid-rise office larger than 100,000 sqft with a BACnet-based system.
As always, please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions on our emerging technology work. We’d love to hear from you.
