    ABOUT OUR SPEAKERS:

    Adam Tibbs,  President, Project FROG 

    Build smart. Go fast. Reduce waste. Keep it green. Make it last. Adam Tibbs' commitment to sustainability extends equally to Project FROG, the venture-backed company he steers as president, and the award-winning green building solutions it produces. A seasoned entrepreneur, Adam has successfully managed growth and created value for burgeoning companies in a variety of sectors. His ability to embrace a vision and connect the dots to the technology and tools required to execute is making affordable green building solutions more than just an idea. In an industry that has seen innovation only within narrow channels, Adam is helping Project FROG innovate across the construction spectrum to transform an industry increasingly misaligned with market needs.

    Prior to joining Project FROG, Adam managed several multi-million dollar software projects. He also founded a software development company that experienced 40X growth in revenue in fewer than four years. Adam is a graduate of Columbia University, where he earned a degree in English Literature

    Mark Miller, AIA, LEED AP, Founder, Project FROG  

    Mark has long specialized in people-focused environments for communities ranging from the most basic to the most developed. Early work crystallized a belief that design is only successful when it solves the core needs of the occupants. Such solutions are achieved by designing from the inside out - starting with the users. Allowing form to follow function, Mark employed innovative ideas that pick up where traditional design has stalled. Mark recognized the success of other industries to integrate science, technology and human behavior: they leveraged processes to great effect, producing cost-effective solutions for everything from smart phones to smart cars. Why weren't there any affordable smart buildings? Smart buildings would neatly address three of today's critical needs : performance, environmental sustainability and economy.

    When Mark launched Project FROG in 2006, he created a new paradigm: the ability to design and manufacture, on a commercial scale, sophisticated smart building systems. The resultant FROG building products and systems are technologically superior, architecturally elegant, highly functional, energy efficient, and adaptable for a variety of applications. Client requests came in before the first prototype was completed. Relative newcomers to the scene, Project FROG's smart building solutions are arguably the brightest bulbs in the box. Following a motto of Better, Greener, Faster, Cheaper, the FROG buildings are safer, healthier, intuitive, sustainable and extremely affordable. The FROG building system turned Mark's dream of creating smart buildings into reality, and is now transforming an industry. Mark Miller received an undergraduate degree from Haverford College and a graduate degree in Architecture from Cambridge University. He was a Henry Luce Scholar in Asia, as well as a Keasbey Scholar in England. Mark is an active volunteer in a range of professional and community-based organizations. His ideas have been widely published, and his participation is often requested at industry panels and presentations.
