Bit Stew Systems, developer of the Grid Director smart grid analytics platform, says that it is expanding its operations in North America as a result of 400% year-over-year revenue growth and increasing market demands.

According to Bit Stew Systems, a major focus of this expansion has been to hire additional management personnel: Philip Chan will join as director of product engineering, Michael McGee will join as director of operations, Marc Jones will join as director of sales, and Mark Ortiz will join as executive consultant of utility solutions.

In addition to the expansion in personnel, Bit Stew says it has built a model smart grid Network Operations Center (NOC) in its Vancouver headquarters to help utility customers understand what is needed for long-term management and optimization of smart grid networks.

"A model NOC is just what the industry is looking for as utilities shift their focus from deployment to operations and, ultimately, optimization," according to Bill Reny, vice president of product management and marketing.
