Altergy Announces Executive Sales Team Growth

Altergy has appointed senior Silicon Valley sales executive Michael Balter to the role of Vice President of Sales

November 12, 2015, Folsom, CA –   Altergy, the global leader in reliable backup power solutions for telecommunications and critical power applications, is pleased to announce the addition of Michael Balter as the Vice President of Sales.  Mr. Balter will be responsible for worldwide sales and business development, bringing Altergy’s innovative solutions to a larger audience.

Mr. Balter has more than 30 years of experience in sales, sales management, new business development and market creation. Mr. Balter’s previous position with Intel included several senior sales and marketing positions where he came to specialize in introducing new technologies to the market.

Eric Mettler, CEO of Altergy remarked, “Mr. Balter’s versatile, hands-on experience launching new technologies combined with his consultative sales style fits Altergy and its customers very well.  While building our sales team, we looked for an individual with deep experience in creating markets and building relationships and found it in Michael.”

With a background in tapping into new technologies, Mr. Balter was taken with the value and sustainability of Altergy’s fuel cell solutions, “I have seen a lot of companies try to change the world with their technology, but Altergy’s fuel cells are delivering on the promise of cleaner, more reliable and affordable power.   In my life I’ve had two opportunities to be a part of something great.  First was Intel, now with Altergy.”

Altergy also added two new Major Accounts Sales Directors to address the growing demand for its alternative backup power solutions in these markets. Stacey Sabol, a telecommunications veteran and Corinne Vita, a sales executive with deep data center knowledge and experience have joined the team.  Supplementing an already strong sales team with three new sales professionals will further communicate the benefits of Altergy’s fuel cell solutions, and the company’s well-rounded leadership.

Altergy continues to ramp up its support, implementation and development teams to accommodate a rapid increase in sales.
