Johnson Controls’ new director for life sciences


Eric Fraistat has been appointed director, life sciences for the Americas by Johnson Controls, Inc. He will lead the life sciences sales team in setting strategies in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical devices industry sectors.

“I plan to pursue a customer-driven strategy that leverages the strength of the new Johnson Controls, which includes our York and Frick products,” said Fraistat. “No other company can offer the combination of equipment, controls, validation support and industry knowledge that Johnson Controls now brings to our customers.”

Fraistat joined Johnson Controls when York was acquired in December of 2005. He had been director for pharmaceutical marketing at York since 2003. In previous positions with Schneider Electric and Con Edison, Fraistat worked to develop end-to-end solutions that maximized facility operational effectiveness, reliability and energy efficiency. He holds a BS in Operations Research and Industrial Engineering from Cornell University and has an MBA from Manhattan College.
