David Muyres

David Muyres is cur­rently the Direc­tor of Busi­ness Build­ing for John­son Con­trols, a for­tune fifty cor­po­ra­tion. David pre­vi­ously held the posi­tion of Vice Pres­i­dent, Edu­ca­tional Ini­tia­tives, for Art Cen­ter Col­lege of Design in Pasadena, Cal­i­for­nia. In this capac­ity, Mr. Muyres was respon­si­ble for devel­op­ing new strate­gic offer­ings for the col­lege. Mr. Muyres was also respon­si­ble for direct­ing the Art Center’s sum­mits, a series of annual events focused on sus­tain­able mobil­ity (www.artcenter.edu/summit). The sum­mits have brought together global busi­ness, design and gov­ern­men­tal lead­ers to dis­cuss the future of sus­tain­able transportation—they explore cre­ative new sys­tems and busi­ness mod­els that inspire peo­ple to think dif­fer­ently about how we all move around the planet. Prior to join­ing Art Cen­ter in 2005, Mr. Muyres worked at John­son Con­trols Inc. (JCI), where he held var­i­ous func­tional and exec­u­tive man­age­ment posi­tions within the auto­mo­tive divi­sion in the United States, Europe and Asia. Dur­ing his tenure at JCI, he received six patents. Mr. Muyres grew up in Min­neapo­lis, Min­nesota. He stud­ied mechan­i­cal engi­neer­ing and phi­los­o­phy at Rens­se­laer Poly­tech­nic Insti­tute in Troy, NY, and grad­u­ated from Art Cen­ter Col­lege of Design in Pasadena, CA, with a Bach­e­lor of Sci­ence in Trans­porta­tion Design.

In Decem­ber 2008, Mr. Muyres was asked to pro­vide tes­ti­mony on the future of the auto­mo­tive indus­try to Rep. Ed Markey’s House Select Com­mit­tee on Energy Inde­pen­dence and Global Warm­ing. Mr. Muyres has acted as a design advi­sor to var­i­ous start-up mobil­ity and trans­porta­tion com­pa­nies and is assist­ing in the cre­ation of the NewNorth Cen­ter for Design in Busi­ness located in West Michi­gan. Mr. Muyres has a pro­found inter­est in bring­ing the best and bright­est minds together to re-envision the trans­porta­tion indus­try. He looks to bring his global indus­try expe­ri­ence, cre­ative approach and the power of his broad net­work to develop solution-minded part­ner­ships com­mit­ted to cre­at­ing more effi­cient ways of mov­ing peo­ple and goods around the planet. Mr. Muyres recently joined forces with Hunt­Green LLC in Wash­ing­ton, DC, to fur­ther inte­grate sus­tain­able mobil­ity solu­tions into newly emerg­ing national policy.
