Justin Ploegert

Sr. Staff Engineer/Sr. Project Manager at Johnson Controls Inc.


Justin Ploegert has spent the better part of the last 15 years honing his skills as a Cloud Sherpa, where since joining Johnson Controls in 2011 has led several initiatives to architect and evolve the Building Efficiency hosting and development strategies. As an avid DevOps believer, Justin has acted as thought leader to bring his unique perspectives and experience to help shape the culture and software practices of Johnson Controls. A standing member of the Building Efficiency Security Council, Justin spends much of his time and efforts exploring the implications of cloud and IoT security and how it is evolving in the ever changing connected world of devices.

More recently, Justin has been responsible for architecting and building the Johnson Controls IoT connectivity platform, which is being consumed by all of JCI's connected offerings globally.

Previously, Justin acted a key member in the delivery of the Connected Chiller platform, which collects data from over 3,000 chillers worldwide providing monitoring and analytics to deliver real-time data to the control engineers that need it to make informed choices daily. As a result of this program, Johnson Controls was a finalist for "2016 Microsoft Partner of the Year."

Justin has several patents pending, and holds a Master’s degree in Computer Science from University of Wisconsin Milwaukee in 2012, where he focused his studies on Cryptography and Wireless Lossy Networks.
