Newton, Mass.-based Ambient Corp. has appointed David Masters chief technology officer (CTO), replacing former senior vice president and CTO Ram Rao.

Ambient says Masters is an early pioneer in the development of IP-based smart grid communications architecture. As a former manager for technology development at Duke Energy, he was responsible for the development and application of smart grid and telecommunications networks to support the utility's strategic objectives.

"As an early proponent of the use of open IP-based communication networks, [Masters] successfully developed and installed a versatile and scalable digital grid that is providing near- and long-term value in the daily operation of Duke's grid infrastructure,” says John J. Joyce, Ambient president and CEO. “We look forward to David's leadership bringing new momentum and utility insight to Ambient's research and development activity."
