Congratulations to Fernando Neto, newly elected as Global Regional Director for BICSI’s (Building Industry Consulting Service International, Inc.) Board of Directors, and a Senior Manager in HH Angus’ Connect Division. When he assumes the role in February 2023, Fernando will bring demonstrated expertise in ICT to this international professional organization that supports advances in information and communications technology, and certifies professionals such as RCDDs - Registered Communications Distribution Designers.
A member of BICSI since 2000 and an RCDD himself, Fernando will continue as Canadian Regional Director, and Board Liaison to BICSI’s Ethics Committee until he begins his new role. In addition to his formal roles, he has previously hosted ICT forums and presented at several BICSI Canadian conferences.
Leading up to his new role with BICSI, Fernando has focused on the effective procurement, integration, and delivery of technology for projects across the globe, including complex facilities such as hospitals, airports, sports venues, education, and rail facilities. His goals for his new role on the Board will be to “continue to work with BICSI and the Board of Directors to address BICSI’s global members’ concerns around course/training locations and costs, as well as membership value, to creating a strong ROI for current and future BICSI members. I also want to help elevate the recognition of the BICSI credentials and to promote our industry through educational outreach.”
Bringing over 24+ years of experience at the intersection of technology and the built environment, Fernando’s current role is as a Senior Manager in the Angus Connect division of HH Angus. He leads a team of highly skilled professionals in the design, project management, and delivery of communications systems (SCS, public address, intercom, nurse call, audio video, network and Wi-Fi infrastructure) and security systems (access control, video surveillance, intrusion detection, and RTLS) projects, with a focus on the healthcare, laboratory, and commercial sectors.
