Tantalus, a provider of smart grid communications, today announced that its board of directors has appointed Peter Londa as president, CEO and board member. Londa joins Tantalus after a search led by the chairman of the board, John McEwen, co-CEO of Discovery Capital.

“Tantalus is experiencing a positive growth trajectory, and with the evolution of our newly enhanced communications platform, TUNet, the company is poised for significant progression,” stated McEwen. “We firmly believe that Pete’s strong smart grid technology background coupled with his proven track record of driving operational and growth-oriented objectives make him the ideal candidate to propel the company to the next level.”

Londa previously served as the CEO of BPL Global, a smart grid company delivering technology solutions to the electric utility industry with operations in the United States, Europe, Middle East, India and China. He was responsible for planning, directing, and managing all aspects of the company’s strategy, operations, engineering, business development, and financing. Londa was instrumental in executing the sale of BPLG to a division of Danaher Corp. in 2013.

Londa has taken over for outgoing CEO Eric Murray, who transitioned from the company after a decade in various leadership and executive positions within Tantalus. Murray was instrumental in accelerating the company’s growth plan, solidifying Tantalus’ market position as a leading AMI utility partner in public power and establishing strategic alliances with the industry’s leading technology providers.
