AUSTIN, Texas, June 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Customer and demand side solutions expert Brad Clark, a ten-year energy industry veteran, has joined the growing team at Innovari as director of program operations. Clark will lead Innovari's global service delivery team for electric utility customers who have partnered with their utility to utilize Innovari's Interactive Energy Platform™ (IEP). He will manage the customer experience and focus on innovative ways to maximize customer benefits to ensure continued success for this new partnership between utilities and their end-use customers.
"Innovari's IEP transforms a one-way, non-interactive relationship between the end-use customer and utility into an interactive, real-time partnership that benefits their facility and the grid at the same time," said Innovari Chief Operating Officer Andrew Fuselier. "Globally, we are experiencing tremendous demand for our offerings and we continue to add the highest quality resources to meet our customer commitments. With more than 20 years of experience selling and delivering high-impact, technology-enabled business solutions, Brad will help us continue to find creative ways to ensure our customers and utilities get the most out of our IEP partnership."
Clark comes to Innovari after seven years at EnerNOC, where he most recently served as director of field operations. Clark has led the delivery of demand side management and energy intelligence services to clients across five continents.
"I'm proud to drive the customer experience at Innovari," said Clark. "They have created the first true partnership between an end-use customer and the utility – one driven through unparalleled technology and automation so partners realize maximum benefits without the overhead of day-to-day management. IEP is revolutionizing the way utilities and their customers work together. I'm very excited to help utilities improve overall system utilization and enable customer interaction at the edge of the grid – safely, reliably and economically."
Clark graduated from Miami University of Ohio with a degree in pre-med in 1987 before earning a master's of business administration, with a specialization in management information systems, from the University of Texas at Austin in 1993.
