Grimes is a C-Level executive with more than 20 years of experience in the IT industry, specifically in managed services, product development and infrastructure solutions.

He is charged with continued innovation of the Innovolt technology from core power protection into broader electronics environmental protection, based on strong analytics and managed service offerings. "Building on his experience in data center infrastructure management, Ben will bring his previous practice into Innovolt's breadth of vertical markets and managed services allowing the company to expand its market leadership position," stated Jeff Spence , COO and President of Innovolt.

Both Luciani and Bright bring long term industry expertise in design and development of power systems with strong analytical backgrounds. Also, the engineering staff has been expanded with the addition of Mark Barton and Steven Holman to Innovolt's engineering team at the facilities in South Florida.
"We are focused on developing a pool of exceptional talent and the R&D team is mission critical. Our new team members will continue strengthening Innovolt's leading electronics management technology.

Innovolt Technology: Critical to Creating High Performance Business Environments
Innovolt's proprietary and patented electronics management technology is cost-effective, highly scalable, integratable, and proven to significantly increase product reliability and lifespan. Where deployed, companies have experienced a discernible decrease in service calls on protected equipment.
"Innovolt's technology has been globally adopted across multiple verticals and continues to evolve at a rapid pace. However, there is much more to come and as we build on the capabilities of the technology and deliver new services, our market reach will increase," said Ben Grimes , CTO of Innovolt. "Look for continued developments from our team, developments that are unmatched in the industry today."
Innovolt's technology solves a host of common power problems that most businesses pay for through shortened electronics lifespan and decreased product reliability — both of which are counterproductive and affect the way organizations operate.
