Stephanie will report to President Matthew Plante, and will be responsible for customer technology integration, virtual power plant performance and overall customer success.
Stephanie has spent her career helping high-growth energy and technology companies achieve operational scale and deliver on customer promises.

More importantly, we're thrilled to be joined by a leader who embodies the core Voltus values of bright, gritty and good. She will help us attract top talent, optimize the value of demand response for our customers and help us set the standard for demand response," said Matthew Plante, President of Voltus.
"Demand response will be the key that unlocks our clean energy future," said Stephanie. "Voltus' innovation, passion and best-in-class demand response technology platform are providing a better way to manage energy for our commercial and industrial customers, helping them make the complex simple. Working with our customers to ensure they successfully achieve their business objectives and build strong reliability and sustainability strategies is an extremely exciting and rewarding opportunity."
Voltus continues to grow rapidly across all North American markets. As it embarks on market expansion internationally and building out its industry-leading product platform, it will continue hiring quickly across all functions, from sales to software engineering.
