arbnco Makes Double Senior Leadership Appointment to Boost US Market Presence
As we continue to expand our presence in the US market, we’re pleased to announce that we’ve made two appointments to our senior leadership team to support our US operations. Casey Pettit has joined arbnco as our new Vice President of Operations, and Ricky Gratz has joined as our new Utilities Senior Director of Sales.
Both bring with them a wealth of experience in the energy efficiency market. Casey has worked for over 15 years at the nexus of technology, policy, and business to improve the energy efficiency of commercial buildings. His previous roles include Director of HVAC at PECI, a non-profit organisation dedicated to advancement in energy use, generation and policy. Prior to that, he spent a decade at Veris Industries, where he began in Research and Development and went on to lead the Environmental Sensors division of the business.
Similarly, Ricky brings over a decade of experience in the energy industry across strategy, sales and regulatory affairs helping utilities achieve their goals. He will support and propel the sale of arbnco’s leading building performance software platform in the US utilities market.
The appointments come at an exciting time for arbnco as we look to build on our existing success in the US. It follows our recent partnership with utilities giant Southern Company, which saw the company deploy our energy optimisation suite to help its commercial customers increase energy efficiency, reduce costs, and enhance occupant wellbeing.
Speaking about the appointments, our CEO and co-founder Maureen Eisbrenner, said:
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Casey and Ricky to our team – two senior leaders, who’re not only bringing to arbnco technical prowess and contacts in the industry, but also great passion and drive to create a clean-energy future.
“This double appointment is a stepping stone for arbnco. We had an extremely positive 2021 and want to build on this momentum to move into a next exciting phase of development by expanding our foothold in the US market. Ricky and Casey will play a pivotal role in opening new doors and building on the growing demand for solutions helping businesses to meet their net-zero goals.”
