Gentrack Appoints New Leader to Drive Australian Business Growth

Gentrack, a leading provider of utility billing and customer experience software, is pleased to announce Paul King as its new Country Manager in Australia.

With an extensive background in the utilities sector, King will spearhead Gentrack’s operations countrywide to ensure the business continues its momentum in the region and that its solutions continue to evolve to support the needs of the market.

Prior to joining Gentrack, King advised on key projects in Australia’s utilities market as an Independent Sector Advisor to global information technology and consulting companies Wipro and Capgemini. Passionate about driving growth through strategic planning, he has also held key positions with Logica, Honeywell, Gridx Power and TXU Energy.

“I’m thrilled to join Gentrack at such an important time in its development. To remain at the forefront of the utilities industry, water companies, distributors and suppliers alike must constantly change the way they do business. Gentrack has a proven record of industry and customer collaboration to design and build the essential solutions to support new business models and unlock real business value.

“We have great talent on the ground delivering complex projects and supporting utilities across Australia and we will build on this expertise. I’m also excited to have the opportunity to launch the cloud based Junifer billing solution in Australia. Junifer has secured the majority of all new market entrants in the UK and in combination with the market leading Velocity platform, we will grow the business and stay ahead of the game.”

Ian Black, Gentrack’s Chief Executive, says: “Gentrack’s software has become the product of choice for many leading players in Australia’s energy and water sectors. Paul’s experience and thought leadership and his focus on customer success and innovation are qualities that will ensure our business goes from strength to strength. His leadership will ensure that customers continue to benefit from our expert solutions and know-how in utility billing, customer engagement and market compliance.”
