Irvine, CA, February 05, 2014 – Phoenix Energy Technologies, a leading provider of Enterprise Energy Management software and services, is pleased to announce the promotion of Michael McMahon, former Director of Sales and Marketing, to his new role as Vice President.

In his new role, Michael will be responsible for spearheading PhoenixET’s efforts to expand business partnerships with retail clients and streamline current operations. He will also work closely with PhoenixET’s new Vice President of OEM Sales, and former Vice President of Facilities and Energy for Limited Brands, Ron Rau, to bring to market new service offerings for BCS manufacturers.

These new and developing offerings of Data as a Service (DaaS) to the OEM market show a commitment by PhoenixET to expand its proven impact on the energy industry. His new role will also align with PhoenixET’s account management and implementation teams to ensure their clients not only get the best launch, but their contracts and expectations are aligned with their business goals.

Previously in his position as Director of Sales, McMahon found great success in securing new opportunities while offering his mentorship to the sales team. “Michael has been a tremendous part of our growth strategy in the last 18 months. Since his joining PhoenixET, he has helped shape our go-to market strategy to align with what the customer’s goals and agendas are and has proven to be a leader inside PhoenixET,” said Lisa Varga, CEO of PhoenixET. With her trademark enthusiasm, she adds “I am confident he will make a significant impact and help drive our company to our next level of growth.”

While the strategies he brought to PhoenixET have created new added value for clients, he also enhanced his standing as a sought out energy management expert and was recently selected to be a speaker at PRSM’s annual National Conference in Orlando, Florida. The PhoenixET team is proud to have such a passionate and motivated leader represent the company at one of the industry’s premier trade shows.

Prior to joining PhoenixET, McMahon held several leadership positions in green energy startups in Southern California and Israel and holds a BAS in Business and Managerial Economics from San Diego State University.
