7 October 2021, San Francisco, CA - Voltus, Inc., the leading distributed energy resource (DER) technology company, announces the addition of Ashley Fieglein Johnson to its Board of Directors. Johnson brings nearly 30 years of leading technology company strategy, finance, and organizational development experience to complement Voltus's exceptional Board of Directors.
Johnson's career began as a Technology Investment Banker at Morgan Stanley after completing her undergraduate and graduate studies at Stanford University. After several years of private equity-based investment work, Johnson founded GreenAtom, a professional services firm focused on bolstering companies in the cleantech arena, including solar and wind energy, smart grid, energy efficiency, energy storage, and recycling technologies.
