Expands Energy Technology Practice

BOSTON, January 27, 2020 – Bowen Advisors, a Boston-based M&A and strategic advisory firm focused on growth technology companies, today announced that Ross Malme has joined the firm as Senior Advisor, based in Atlanta.

“We have quietly been building our Energy Tech practice over the last 5 years,” said Paul Bowen, President and Founder of Bowen Advisors. “In that time, we have established many lasting relationships across the ecosystem. More importantly, we believe that Energy Tech has the potential to be the firm’s largest sector over time. Partnering with Tom Crews, Ross Malme’s arrival truly represents a doubling down on our efforts as we believe new technologies will be adopted by utilities at an accelerating rate.”

Ross joins Bowen Advisors with proven expertise working with high growth energy technology companies on strategy and raising capital. In addition, he has over 20 years of senior management experience, including founding and growing EnScan, the first successful wireless automatic meter reading company in the industry which went on to become the standard of the utility industry for over 25 years, and RETX, a cloud based electricity demand response technology and service company which was deployed in Northeastern US wholesale electricity markets. Ross has been an advisor to the US Department of Commerce, the US Trade and Development Agency on the export of US Smart Grid technology to the developing world, and the International Energy Agency (IEA), where he worked with 12 IEA member countries to restructure their electricity markets to include demand side participation. Ross earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Minnesota and an MBA from the College of St. Thomas.

Ross added, “I am excited to be joining a technology-focused firm that has built a team of senior bankers and professionals with strong client relationships and deep industry expertise. My experience in working with a wide range of technology companies will complement the firm’s exceptional domain knowledge in all of the areas required to support the rapidly evolving digital grid. I look forward to helping expand the Bowen platform both domestically and internationally.”
