PARIS, June 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Enlighted, Inc., the leading provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for commercial buildings, today announced the expansion of its global operations with the opening of its French subsidiary office in Paris, France. The new subsidiary office will be responsible for driving the adoption of Enlighted's smart sensor technology to customers in the region and furthering its presence in EMEA.
"Enlighted has driven radical change for customers in the United States, equipping buildings with smart sensor technology that has enabled them to recognize huge cost savings and become smarter about energy savings, productivity, occupancy and more," said Enlighted Executive Vice President Christian Rodatus. "Enlighted is committed to driving the same evolution across Europe and the opening of our new subsidiary office in France is the next step in bringing commercial real estate into the Internet of Things."
Enlighted has cultivated strategic business partnerships in the European market for nearly two years, including Electricite de France (EDF), the third largest utility company in the world.

"With a huge commercial real estate footprint and widespread commitment from domestic businesses to reduce energy consumption, France represents a significant growth opportunity for Enlighted," added Rodatus. "The Internet of Things is creating a world of possibility for businesses looking to make more informed decisions about their physical environment based on the data at their disposal."
The new subsidiary office will be managed by Stephane Werba, a 20-year veteran of the European technology industry who joins Enlighted as vice president.
