Our Team

Sergey Shalunov

Sergey Shalunov

CEO and Founder

Sergey Shalunov

CEO and Founder
Sergey is a serial entrepreneur. Growing up in a family of scientists benefited him in more ways than merely sparking his passion for nanotechnology at an early age. By the time he graduated from university, he had acquired a taste for innovation and an entrepreneurial spirit to match. At the age of 22, Sergey joined his father’s research and development company. After honing his business acumen in a sales leadership position, he quickly progressed to a product owner role and then on to General Manager. Over the next few years, he ran several high-tech projects. These included developing composite materials were three to four times more wear-resistant than standard alloys, and an affordable coolant which performed as effectively as the expensive coolant of a well-known European brand.

Sergey next pivoted to real estate, developing a shopping mall in Russia and a residential building in the UAE. His curiosity and appetite for trying out new things led to him launching yet another enterprise, this time in the IoT space. While working on this project, Sergey spotted a much bigger opportunity in the PropTech and ESG sectors. Given the problems of inefficient HVAC management (Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning) in real estate and of global climate change, there was a need for HVAC intelligent management and optimization in order to keep utility bills under control and to reduce carbon footprints.

Thus in 2019, Sergey founded Arloid Automation – an AI-powered solution for energy savings.
