Kenton will be responsible for sales leadership, creation of new customer and partner relationships, contribution in consultative support of projects and initiatives, and strategic support of corporate direction.
He joins the WLS team from Schneider Electric in Fort Collins, CO. Schneider Electric is the provider of the ArcFM solution, based on the utility industry-leading ESRI ArcGIS platform. Kenton began his career in utilities information in 1988 while working for Western Resources, joining Miner & Miner (M&M) in 2004.

Wind Lake Solutions is a very unique group of talented, hardworking individuals that has the most important aspect of good business driving their decisions and that is customer satisfaction. I couldn’t be more excited to be joining this team!”
