A customer-centric culture dedicated to building reliable, user-friendly solutions for utilities and telcos
Instant value from data in motion
As the world flattens, the devices that power it and connect us are churning out more and more data. When we asked why no one was providing enterprises with a powerful, scalable, affordable, user-friendly data management solution to create value from their data, everyone said it was too much data to process. We built Future Grid Platform and proved them wrong.
Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer
Chris has an extensive, 20-year history holding strategic positions across a wide variety of industries, including energy, pay TV, telecommunications and construction.
Chris’s accomplishments include delivering the strategic direction for large programs of work while more recently he has supported large enterprise innovation for companies, such as Foxtel, where he led a Field Workforce transformation program that delivered savings of over $30 million per year.
As the visionary shaping and driving Future Grid’s mission, Chris recognised early on the emerging problem of an overabundance of data, as more devices become connected and produced more data. He recognised companies had no way to make sense of the reams of data in an efficient, cost-effective manner, and set out to make Future Grid an accessible, customer-centric solution for utilities and telcos. Chris holds a Bachelor of Electronics Engineering from Swinburne University.
