Kathy Shaffer
With my team, I’m responsible for developing and implementing innovative solutions for our clients in North America using smart grid data – anything from meter data management solutions, customer engagement web portals, demand response management solutions, and other smart grid applications. It’s great to see how we’re combining multiple applications and systems to solve client challenges in new ways and I really enjoy the collaboration I see at OMNETRIC Group – the way everyone works together to arrive at the best possible solution.

At OMNETRIC Group we use data intelligence to improve our customers’ grid and business performance. Integration of all the underlying systems is essential.

Edward Benning
The utility industry is part of our key infrastructure, so it’s great to be part of an organization that I honestly believe can make a difference to how utilities meet the challenges they are going to be faced with in the coming decade. I think our advantage lies in bringing together the strengths of Accenture and Siemens and combining them with a can-do, collaborative working style, where everyone pulls together to bring the best technology, products, services and know-how for the best possible solution.

Franz Winterauer
I lead OMNETRIC Group’s Energy Insight business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa – crunching different sources of utility data, addressing wind power forecasts, asset reliability, consumer behavior and more. I enjoy working with utilities in a collaborative and interactive way – be it in joint R&D projects or in large implementation programs - to discover the hidden value in their data. I’m convinced, and I ‘m sure my team will confirm, that for the next ten years at least, being a statistician is THE cool job to have – we are truly changing the way things work!

Maikel van Verseveld

CEO

I’m CEO of OMNETRIC Group and proud to lead a growing team of experts dedicated to developing and delivering integrated smart grid solutions for an increasingly digital grid.

At Accenture, I worked across all facets of the utility industry, from AMI/smart metering to asset management and field service operations, as well as customer care and billing, but my passion today with OMNETRIC Group is bringing together information and operational systems to enable the effective distribution of energy.

Craig Cavanaugh

CEO Americas

I lead our sales team in North America. What I like most about this job is the diversity and dynamism of the market we work in and the fact that we are agile enough to respond in innovative ways that are helping to shape the future of the energy industry. A more interactive and dispersed grid is challenging current business models and opening new doors. Our job is to put the right people and the right technology together to deliver solutions that not only surpass expectations but also push the boundaries of the possible.
