David C. Price has joined PA Consulting (PA), the consultancy that’s bringing ingenuity to life, as a Partner in the Energy and Utilities Practice. An expert in digital solutions, David will work with PA’s US clients to design and deliver new capabilities resulting from the advent of distributed energy resources and the wider implications of electrification. This will involve helping both traditional and new players identify and define the critical new solutions they will need to succeed and engaging with and codeveloping these new solutions with key industry technology platform providers.
David has spent his career bridging the gap between ideas and reality, often in response to new market requirements and crises. He is a digital transformation leader and much of his recent focus has been in performing extensive data driven work in the definition and creation of executive information, strategic risk analysis and major investment business case development and approvals.
David joins PA from Black & Veatch Management Consulting where he served as the CTO and Executive Leader for Innovation and Transformational Solutions. He previously served as a Managing Partner for Utilities and Natural Resources at CSC and has previously created leading energy and utility products and key energy market enabling platforms while CTO at Logica (now CGI).
Clients hire PA to anticipate the future, champion innovation, and unlock new potential in energy and utilities markets. Last year PA’s US energy and utilities team launched iPredict™, the world’s first artificially intelligent system for predicting failures in critical underground electricity distribution assets. PA’s Utility practice is committed to helping Utility clients with their goals around decarbonization, electrification of transport, improving the customer experience and innovating to improve the reliability and resiliency of the grid. As part of this wider mission, David’s focus will be centered around building new industry platforms along with enterprise data strategy and governance.
Aris Karcanias, Global Head of PA Consulting’s Energy and Utilities Practice, says: “We welcome David to the firm. He is an expert in helping organizations see the implications and create successful solution and platform strategies in response to major market changes. He will bring this skillset to our clients as they embark on their digital transformation journeys.”
David C. Price, Energy and Utilities Expert at PA Consulting, says: “I’m excited to join PA Consulting and add to the company’s already formidable skills in digital, product and market solutions development. Implementing the next generation of intelligent industry solutions will take a huge amount of creativity and perseverance. PA has a clear purpose and talented people with a supporting culture that makes it the ideal place to help our clients accomplish these dramatic transformations in the coming years. It’s the perfect place for me to be.”
