Work with Phil

My name is Phil Zito and I will help you solve your building automation problems.

Some of the areas that I am able to produce amazing results in are:

  • How to create a sustainable building automation standard for your organization
  • How to increase your close rate by adopting a solutions-oriented sales approach
  • How to structure, train, and develop your BAS teams for maximum profitability
  • How to increase your own BAS knowledge and advance in your career
  • How to read the BAS market and make the right strategic decisions prior to investing capital

I have over a decade of experience, here are some of the highlights:

  • Lead Controls Technician JCI’s Seattle Branch
  • Operations Manager leading a $60M P&L with over 22 FTE’s (Techs and PM’s)
  • Lead Analytics Sales Engineer (responsible for being the lead sales engineer for JCI’s analytics offerings)
  • Managing the Technical Integration Program for JCI (responsible for building out JCI’s integration strategy and processes)
  • I literally wrote the book on BAS, Building Automation Systems A to Z and have created several online BAS training courses
  • Vast experience in systems integration, sales, operations management, information technology, and of course building automation

Over the past 11 years, I have worked on the sales pursuit and design of some of the largest construction projects in the United States. I have advised executives of Fortune 500 companies on how to develop their smart building infrastructure.

At this current time, I have 1 spot open for consulting. 

To see if we are a good fit for each other click the button below to set up a quick, no obligation 15-minute conversation.



Due to the private nature of my consulting, my clients will only be identified by role and geographic location.

Phil’s knowledge of the construction industry is simply amazing. I feel like I received a decade worth of experience in a few short calls. Talking with Phil exposed some serious gaps in my business model where I was putting myself at risk. After working with Phil, I was able to restructure how I deliver projects and the number of callbacks and scope disputes dropped dramatically. Thanks Phil!

I was initially hesitant to work with phil because I knew him only through a recommendation from a friend and his consulting rates seemed rather high. I was wrong. I have been struggling to increase the profit margin of my projects for several years and in the first 15 minutes phil pointed out 2 changes that literally increased my profit margin by 2%. I run the operations for a medium sized integrator in Europe and I’m embarrassed to say that over my 20+ years in operations I never thought of these changes. I would recommend phil to anyone who wants to grow the profitability of their BEMS business.

In one short hour Phil helped me to sift through my ideas and structure a plan to develop a training program for my business. His ability to meet me where I was at and assist me in establishing a plan that met the needs of the market was outstanding. His understanding of the technical, economic, and operational aspects of building automation is unlike anyone I’ve ever met.
