“The role of technology is more important and complex than ever before,” said Ms. Bolen. “With the many pressures the industry faces today coupled with the speed of change, it’s critical that utilities get in the driver’s seat. First, they must understand where the industry and technology is heading, and then determine how to prioritize their initiatives accordingly. Whether it’s driving revenue from new sources, improving financial and regulatory performance, or automating more business processes, I look forward to helping our clients deliver on plans that are both outcome-based and cost-effective.”
