Maureen Bolen of Utegration Honored in White Paper Featuring U2030 "Women Who SPARK" Award Winners

Houston, TX  – October 20, 2022 –Today, Utegration announced that the Utility 2030 Collaborative (U2030) has published a new white paper, “How Women Who SPARK Award Winners are Changing the World – Part 1”, that features Maureen Bolen, Utegration’s chief growth officer. The publication recognizes the work of exceptional female utility innovators who are spearheading, building, launching, or enabling the creation of utility products, services, and experiences that are inventive and commercially successful.  

Bolen was recognized with a Women Who SPARK Award during the inaugural U2030 Annual SPARK Meeting, August 28-29, 2022, in Los Angeles. Bolen envisioned and led the creation of Utility4U, a pre-configured, end-to-end and modular cloud platform that enables all operations of an intelligent utility. The platform has key functionality from customer service, finance, supply chain, work and asset management, analytics, and even regulatory compliance built in. It also includes managed services and upgrades at a fraction of the price these systems would normally cost. 

Utilities — especially smaller ones with as few as 50,000 customers — have long needed a solution that makes modern and robust technology affordable and also reduces the risks historically associated with system replacements. Maureen led a team of talented utilities-specific technology experts at Utegration to address this need by building Utility4U. 

“Innovation is critical for utilities to meet today’s challenges,” says Bart Thielbar, president and CEO of Utegration. “The Utility4U solution that Maureen and the team built is remarkable. Not only because it simplifies the technology utilities need for a successful future, but it democratizes it, so that even smaller utilities have the advantages historically reserved for the larger ones. The whole Utegration team congratulates Maureen on this well-deserved recognition.”
