KNOXVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–EnerNex, an electric power research, engineering and consulting firm, announces changes to its organizational structure. The changes, effective August 1, 2016, will enhance the collaboration between the company’s two traditional business areas, Smart Grid Engineering and Power Systems Consulting, to better serve its customers as grid modernization initiatives gain momentum.
Jeremy Laundergan, who joined the firm in 2011, is promoted to Vice President of Consulting Services to manage the Smart Grid Engineering group, leading cross-functional teams on successful business case development, technology and engineering design projects. Aaron Snyder, Director of Technology Services, will help support the Smart Grid Engineering and Power Systems Consulting collaboration. Doug Houseman, Vice President of Innovation and Technology, will assume greater responsibilities in the external messaging for EnerNex especially as it relates to the firm’s grid modernization offerings.
This announcement comes in the wake of the passing of EnerNex CTO and co-founder Erich Gunther in June 2016. “We miss Erich tremendously; he was a very unique individual; a power system engineer at heart who became a pioneer in the Smart Grid world later in his career,” said Jeff Lamoree, EnerNex CEO. “As he was able to work and collaborate in both areas, we honor his legacy by continuing to pursue projects and opportunities that he would have loved to be a part of.”
