DALLAS, TX / September 20, 2023 / VertexOne, the leading provider of cloud software designed to revolutionize the customer experience within the energy and utility industry, announced Wednesday the promotion of Chief Operating Officer Robert (Bobby) Batson to the position of President and COO of the company.

"This promotion reflects Bobby's strong leadership and contribution to VertexOne through a phase of tremendous growth and at a time of great change to our business operations as we continue to advance our SaaS offering in the energy and utility industry", said VertexOne Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Jornod, who Batson will continue to report to.
