“I am honored to join Itron’s board of directors and to work with a visionary company that is helping make the most of the world’s energy and water resources,” said Mr. Pulli. “As a leader of a high-tech manufacturing company that has successfully transitioned to offer software and services, I will bring a unique perspective to this board position.
