BOSTON, May 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnerNOC, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENOC), a leading provider of energy intelligence software (EIS), announced today that it has appointed Eric Erston as Vice President of Global Sales. In his new role, Mr. Erston will continue to lead EnerNOC's Enterprise Sales team, while taking on leadership responsibility for the Company's Utility Sales and Sales Operations teams. He succeeds Gregg Dixon in this global Sales leadership role and will report directly to EnerNOC CEO Tim Healy.
Prior to joining EnerNOC in January 2015, Mr. Erston served in a variety of sales leadership roles at RSA, the Security Division of EMC, a multi-billion dollar global provider of cloud-based IT solutions that promote information technology as a service (ITaaS). Mr. Erston rose through RSA's sales organization, leading large teams, driving worldwide growth, and delivering strong software sales results.

"From the moment I arrived at EnerNOC, I've been impressed with the company's sophisticated go-to-market capabilities. I look forward to taking the reins of such a high performing team and delivering on the Company's annual recurring revenue goals," said Erston.
"Gregg has been a tremendous leader who has been with EnerNOC from the beginning, and was instrumental in growing the company into a global leader in energy intelligence software," said Healy. "Eric was hired earlier this year with the intention to eventually become Gregg's successor. Given our traction in the market and increased demand for our SaaS solutions, coupled with Eric's extensive background selling software into large enterprises, we feel that now is the right time to make this transition."
