Following his retirement after 20 years as the senior director managing facilities at California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB), Tony joined the ISES family. He joined ISES in 2015 with a well-deserved reputation, locally for exceptional leadership within the CSU system and nationally for facilities management and energy reduction strategies. Under Tony’s leadership, CSUSB led CSU sustainability efforts by becoming the first System campus to join The Climate Registry community. CSUSB met and exceeded the CSU Office of the Chancellor’s requirement of a 30 percent net reduction in BTUs per gross square foot from 2000 to 2010. Through innovative engineering, more efficient equipment and fixtures and practical behavioral shifts, CSUSB achieved a 33 percent reduction while experiencing more than 61 percent net growth in built space.
His honors and awards include APPA’s 2007 Award for Excellence, which is APPA’s highest institutional honor and provides educational institutions the opportunity for national and international recognition for their outstanding achievements in facilities management, APPA’s “Effective and Innovative Practices Award” (two-time recipient), AEE’s 2009 “National Energy Project of the Year” award and UC/CSU/IOU Sustainability “Best Practices” awards (six-time recipient).
Tony’s ISES responsibilities include contributing to the enhancement of our energy service as well as all our other services on the West Coast. He works closely with clients in California and other western states, serving in dual business development and other leadership roles to meet our clients’ needs.
