Oston, Mass., March 10, 2011 – EnerNOC, a provider of energy management applications for the smart grid, has hired Hugh Scandrett as vice president of engineering.
Scandrett most recently served as vice president of engineering for Kronos Inc., a Massachusetts-based workforce management solutions firm, where he led a global application development team of 425 engineers based in three countries.
He previously held leadership positions with Ounce Labs, IBM Rational, DSC Communications, and Nortel, and brings nearly 30 years of experience in the enterprise software and telecommunications industries with him to EnerNOC.
“Engineering is the backbone supporting EnerNOC’s solutions, and Hugh’s drive and experience make him an ideal leader for our software development, engineering, quality assurance, and R&D teams. He has proven his ability to tackle complex, large-scale product development projects, and we believe that he will be a tremendous asset to EnerNOC as we continue to build out our leading energy management application platform,” said Tim Healy, Chairman and CEO of EnerNOC. “Hugh has excelled both in large tech companies and start-up environments. In every setting, he brings an extraordinary level of intelligence and enthusiasm to his work. We are thrilled to have him join EnerNOC’s leadership team.”
During his tenure at Kronos, Scandrett led the firm’s strategic product development. Kronos launched the next-generation user interface (Navigator) as well as the mobile applications for its workforce management suite under his leadership.
Prior to joining Kronos, Scandrett was president and CEO of Ounce Labs, where he managed the privately held software company’s broad-based strategy and achieved 400 percent customer growth before Ounce was purchased by IBM Rational in 2009.
Previously, from 2003-2005, Scandrett had served as vice president of product development at IBM Rational, where his responsibilities included executive leadership and engineering management for the family of Rational products, which exceeded $750 million in annual revenue.
In each of these roles, Scandrett helped drive substantial increases in market share, new channel development, and several highly successful product releases. Over the course of his career, Scandrett has also held software management and engineering leadership roles at DSC Communications, which was acquired by Alcatel in 1998, and Nortel. He holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science from the University of Western Ontario.
