Welcome Mr. Tyler Smith to the WFI Advisory Board

On behalf of the Waterloo Filtration Institute team and the WFI Advisory Board, we would like to extend our warmest welcome to Mr. Tyler Smith as a new member of our advisory board.

Tyler is Vice President, Healthy Buildings at Johnson Controls. He has spent nearly 18 years with Johnson Controls in roles focused on leveraging building management systems and HVAC equipment to drive important outcomes such as improvements in energy efficiency and indoor air quality. From 2018 to 2020, Tyler led Johnson Controls’ Critical Environments business unit, which designs and manufactures systems for critical spaces such as hospitals and laboratories. Since late 2020, Tyler has led Johnson Controls’ Healthy Buildings initiative with a focus on helping customers realize productivity and financial outcomes associated with operating healthier buildings.

With a background deeply rooted in buildings, HVAC and controls, Tyler brings a unique voice to WFI. We expect to leverage his experience and network at Johnson Controls to ensure our educational and advocacy campaigns are comprehensive and aligned with current building-market trends.

Tyler has an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology and an MBA from Emory University. He resides in Nashville, Tennessee, USA, with his wife and two children.

At WFI, our mission is to support the growth of the global filtration industry and advance the sciences and technologies of filtration and separation processes for a clean, healthy, and sustainable world. We are excited and honored to have Tyler join the WFI Advisory Board. He will be an invaluable asset and driver as we continue to work together to promote a cleaner, smarter, healthier, and more sustainable world.

Meet Tyler on March 7, 2023, as he will address "Clean Air in Buildings: The Rapidly Expanding Value of Improved IAQ post-COVID" at WFI's CFSS 2023 Opening Ceremony with other industry leaders on the latest update of the global filtration market.

Welcome Aboard, Tyler!
