Introducing HData's New Board of Advisors

BIRMINGHAM, AL - HData, the leading provider of data analytics and analytical tools for the regulated energy industry, today announced its new Board of Advisors. The new board consists of industry experts with decades of experience in energy regulation, finance, and consulting. 

"We are particularly proud that our Board of Advisors will include two former chairs of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission," said Hudson Hollister, CEO of HData. "This is an exciting time at the company, with new products and services being added to the HData platform. The new board members will help ensure HData continues to deliver the highest quality analytics and analytical tools to our customers."    

The company’s new Board of Advisors includes:

  • Jon Wellinghoff, CEO, GridPolicy & Former FERC Chairman
  • Neil Chatterjee, Senior Advisor, Hogan Lovells & Former FERC Chairman
  • Becky Blalock, Former SVP & CIO, Southern Company
  • Chris Blake, Assistant Treasurer, Alabama Power Company
  • Alyssa Arnold, CEO, ATex Energy Consulting
  • Hiren Patel, Corporate Accelerator Manager, Alabama Power Company

“Working with HData is an opportunity to continue the modernization of energy regulation that I sought to advance as FERC Chairman,” said Neil Chatterjee. “By digitizing the interface between energy regulators and the regulated energy industry, HData is deploying new technologies to help reduce the burden of regulatory work while enhancing the business value of regulatory information.”

“Early in my career, before I became a technology executive, I worked on Southern Company’s own regulatory compliance–so I’m very excited to use technology to help energy professionals understand and manage regulatory information,” said Betty Blalock. “HData’s platform will transform regulatory tasks, to the benefit of the energy industry and all its stakeholders.”

HData is the only RegTech company delivering streamlined compliance and business intelligence to the U.S. energy industry. The company’s mission is to digitize the interface between the public and private sectors.

“As we formed this group, we intentionally recruited a range of experience, but every Advisor has made a permanent imprint on the regulated energy sector in the United States,” said Hudson Hollister.
