North Carolina has become a key hub in the growth of the Smart Grid with major projects at locally based utilities and a growing number of Smart Grid product providers calling the area home.

“We are thrilled to have Sacha join our growing staff,” said Gary McAuliffe, Theorem Geo’s President. “In addition to his engineering expertise, we are excited about the thought leadership Sacha brings to our team. Sacha has become an industry leader in the relatively new field of Smart Grid integration, and we are excited about the value he will bring to our clients.”
