Focused solely on the utilities industry, Utilligent works by your side from strategy through implementation. Our company was formed in 2012 by a veteran team of utility executives and consultants who had, through decades of professional collaboration and personal interaction, developed mutual respect and trust.

Individually, you’ll experience deep technical expertise, insightful strategic thinking and creative problem solving. As a unit, we share a pragmatic approach, the resourcefulness and grit to deliver on even the most challenging of assignments and the commitment to integrity and humility that builds long-lasting personal relationships.

From that original team, we’ve grown to include dozens of likeminded experts, each chosen for their individual knowledge and skillset as well as their alignment with our straightforward, results-oriented culture.

We are thinkers and doers; operationalizing strategy is what we do best.

But we’ve also developed a reputation as fixers, the people you call when you have a problem and no else seems to be able to come up with the solution.

Dedicated to helping clients complete high-impact, high-visibility — and frequently high-risk — operational initiatives on time and on budget, we assure the anticipated operational benefits are achieved.

Our set of deliverables also includes the tools, techniques and understanding to sustain those results long after we’re gone.

We call this retained wisdom Utilligence. We view it as an investment of trust and transparency in the long-term relationships that have built our reputation and our business.

Employee Spotlights: A Focus on Professional Growth


  • W
    hy do you go to work every morning? For us it’s about the challenge and satisfaction of doing the work that demands our best and produces tangible results.

    We look for exceptionally well-rounded team members who can do all that’s required during a successful client engagement.

    We create strategy, but it doesn’t stop there. We are implementers who specialize in turning strategy into operational reality.

    We do it with our sleeves rolled up, our hands in the mix and our eyes on the details, and we do it until the job is done.

    And we may have to fix some things along the way, too. That takes problem-solving skills and the awareness that one size does not fit all.

  • We celebrate those who are resourceful and creative in their customized solutions. Successful outcomes also require heart and grit, both critical to becoming part of the team.

    We look for candidates that have these qualities embedded into their DNA just the way it’s embedded into ours.

    For those who possess these qualities and the requisite skill sets, we provide an environment and infrastructure where personal, professional, and financial growth opportunities are limitless.

    You’ll have the chance to test your skills and creativity on some of the greatest systems integration challenges in the industry, working alongside a diverse and accomplished team of experts.

    Utilligent is now an E Source company.
