Moving On from ActiveGrid

After four years founding and running ActiveGrid, I have decided to move on and start a new venture. Chris Keene has hit the ground running as ActiveGrid's new CEO, and I am confident the company is in good hands and will continue its success. While it is always great to start something new, I am sad to no longer be working with the incredibly smart and enthusiastic team of people that are at ActiveGrid. It was a great ride and it will be exciting to see ActiveGrid continue it growth!
