Fireside Chat with John Tuccillo
During the May 28, 2020 EMEA Global Member Summit, Dean Nelson hosted a fireside chat with John Tuccillo, Senior Vice President of Global Industry and Government Affairs at Schneider Electric.
John Tuccillo has been a busy man lately, on the phone “day and night” talking with government leaders around the world about charting a sustainable path toward economic recovery. “The topics we in the digital infrastructure industry have been talking about for many years are now front and center,” he said. “The general public now understands the reliance on digital technology for economic, personal and environmental security. And because it’s front and center for the public, governments have decided it’s time to act. The ‘IT for good’ message we’ve been sharing for years is finally resonating.”
Tuccillo pointed to the most recent Economist magazine, and the cover story titled “Seize the moment – The chance to flatten the climate curve.” He said, “Governments, particularly in Europe, are looking to keep sustainability at the center of their recovery efforts.” Indeed, the recently released EU recovery plan keeps the EU committed to its transition to a climate-neutral economy.
