Chief Commercial Officer

The Company Mission

Commercial buildings consume huge levels of energy, a staggering amount of which is wasted. In the UK a typical building is responsible for nearly 4 times the carbon emissions it was designed for. This is because the systems controlling energy consumption are highly complex, prone to error and performance is opaque.

Demand Logic is a UK-based, CleanTech and PropTech start-up, spearheading the green revolution - transforming buildings to become healthier and smash their carbon emissions.

Our mission is to empower property owners and facilities managers to better understand their buildings and to provide actionable recommendations to improve on their ESG targets. Our proprietary software and innovative technology collects and analyses building data to offer digestible and user-friendly recommendations while providing a collaborative tool for on-site teams. We currently stream over 1 billion data values per month from 1.2 million m2 of real estate and our clients include Natwest, Legal and General, Great Portland Estates and The Crown Estate. Our revenues are currently over £1.2 million / year.

Demand Logic has won 14 awards in 5 years covering property technology, cleantech, building controls, smart cities, green buildings, energy, innovation and data analysis. We have been specifically mentioned in the UK parliament, showcased at COP, and are involved in multiple UK government consultations and advisory groups.

Demand Logic is currently raising capital to accelerate growth in the UK and is preparing for a Series A and global expansion in 2022 – 2023. The technology is well established in the UK and has been tested in the US and in continental Europe. The team is confident of its relevance globally.
