Cesare Tizi has been appointed as head of Gentrack Australia. Talgentra supplies customer management, billing and revenue collection systems, and Gentrack is designed specifically for energy and water utilities and network companies.

Talgentra, which was developed and has its head office in New Zealand, was bought by ANZ Capital and the Bayard Group in December 2007.

Tizi was previously CIO of AGL, an Australian utility. He is charged with growing the company’s Australian business; several Australian utilities already use Gentrack, the latest version of which will support advanced metering and meter data management activities.
