Cunningham has worked with utility customers in 40 countries worldwide. "Jay has had his ear to the ground for a long time, and understands the day-to-day realities of operating a utility business. He also knows what our sales team faces in the field. That's a rare combination, and will undoubtedly allow us to raise the bar on what we're delivering to customers. We're very pleased that Jay has joined us," said Zabetakis.
