During the 2017 AHR Expo held from January 30 to February 1, JARN interviewed Robert T. Sharp, executive president, Commercial and Residential Solutions, to hear about Emerson’s new business platform, key markets, cold chain business, and new refrigerants, among others.
JARN (J): First of all, could you tell us your background?
Robert T. Sharp (S): I joined Emerson in 1996 after I got my MBA. Since then, I have been engaged in many businesses in Emerson, such as strategic planning, investor relations, automation, measurement, and process industry. I have also been working in many places such as St. Louis, Missouri, and Minneapolis, Minnesota in the United States as well as Sweden and Switzerland. And then in February of 2015, I replaced Ed Purvis with the climate technologies business. I’ll have 21 years with Emerson this year.
