ATLANTA (February 3, 2015) PrimeStone, a leading data collection and analytics software company, announced today the appointment of two regional sales directors to further strengthen its North American business development team.

John Cleveland joins as sales director responsible for the Southwest region of the U.S., while Jon Scott joins the company as sales director covering the Eastern region.

Cleveland brings more than 25 years of experience in the industry and was previously the southern regional manager with Schneider Electric leading technical sales and support for the electric utility industry. In this role, he covered half of the U.S. creating business plans working to target customers with specific needs from revenue metering substation and feeder metering, across multiple departments such as engineering, customer service and billing. He has also worked with AVO International covering domestic and international territories while being responsible for one-third of company sales.

With nearly a decade of experience in providing utility customer service, bill analysis and energy efficiency software sales and marketing, Scott most recently was the regional manager of business development with Apogee Interactive. His responsibilities focused on consultative sales of software (SaaS) to large investor-owned utilities and municipals.

“I am pleased to welcome two new members to the PrimeStone sales team,” said Andrew Schechter, PrimeStone vice president of sales for U.S. and Canada. “I am confident that their track records of success working with various types of utilities in our industry, coupled with our company’s strategic market planning, will drive PrimeStone to our next level of growth and increase the adoption of our product portfolio.”

We are pleased with the progress the North American business is making on our strategic plans for the market,” said Jose Gaviria, PrimeStone President and CEO. “The addition of Scott and Cleveland further emphasizes our commitment to our current and future utility customers in the region.”
