VANCOUVER, BC, Aug. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Miru Smart Technologies (Miru), a developer of next-generation electrochromic windows (eWindows), today announced that Joseph Arcadi has joined the company as VP of Innovation. In his key role on the Miru Leadership Team, Joe will be responsible for initial strategic partnership programs as well as development and execution of Miru's commercial launch and go-to-market strategy.
"Innovation is at the heart of everything we do at Miru, and having a leader as seasoned and well-respected in the building and glass industries as Joe, reinforces our commitment to continuous improvement and growth," says Curtis Berlinguette, Founder and CEO, Miru Smart Technologies. "Joe has extensive, first-hand knowledge on the buy side of this market and brings that customer-centric lens to our R&D, brand and commercialization efforts."
With a career spanning nearly three decades, Joe has established himself as an exceptional business and thought leader in building products and construction innovation.
