EnerNOC, Inc., a leading provider of energy management applications for the smart grid, today announced that it has hired Patricia O’Neill as Vice President of Human Resources. In this role, O’Neill will draw upon her 30 years of human resources experience at prominent technology companies to continue EnerNOC’s track record of recruiting and retaining high performance teams.
“Patricia is highly regarded in the New England technology community as a leading strategic thinker on human resource matters,” said Tim Healy, Chairman and CEO of EnerNOC. “She has served in key roles at global technology firms. She herself represents EnerNOC’s values of hiring bright, relentless, and good people, and as the leader of our HR function will ensure that EnerNOC continues to foster these values and build an organization that is committed to our mission of changing the way the world uses energy.”
“EnerNOC is on a clear growth trajectory that is supported by an extraordinary group of talented people on three continents. From ensuring that EnerNOC has a full pipeline of qualified talent, to enriching the skills and experience of those already on the team, I am looking forward to being a part of the EnerNOC family,” said O’Neill. “I’m inspired by EnerNOC’s mission and delighted to leverage my HR leadership experience toward its realization.”
O’Neill’s career began with ten years at Prime/Computervision Corporation, during which she established the human resources function for the firm’s Scandinavian subsidiaries. She served as Vice President of Human Resources at Stardent Computer, Inc., a 2-D graphical workstation company, and, later, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at First Data Investor Services Group. Most recently, O’Neill spent ten years as Senior Vice President of Human Resources at Art Technology Group, a publicly traded company specializing in eCommerce software that was acquired by Oracle in 2011.
O’Neill’s appointment marks the most recent addition to EnerNOC’s lineup of executives who came to the company from industry-leading technology firms. In April 2012, EnerNOC hired as its CIO Gerry Wilson, formerly of the Unica Corporation (now part of IBM) and RSA, the security division of EMC. In 2011, Hugh Scandrett was hired as Vice President of Engineering, having served in similar role with Kronos, Inc., the Massachusetts-based workforce management solutions firm. Scandrett also had held leadership positions with Ounce Labs, IBM Rational, DSC Communications, and Nortel.
