On-Ramp Wireless opens office in Singapore

November 11, 2010 – On-Ramp Wireless today announced the opening of new offices in Singapore. As part of this expansion, On-Ramp welcomes Hon Yew Leung as General Manager, heading up the Asia regions. Mr. Leung joins On-Ramp from Itron International, where he was responsible for Asia business development in the utility smart meter market. Beyond that, Mr. Leung brings more than 20 years of industry experience in utility and industrial markets.

On-Ramp’s expansion will aid in driving increasing business development and customer support activities. Asia has been a pioneer of smart grid activity over the last year. In fact, during a speech at the Singapore International Energy Week in early November, Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong cited the smart grid as central to the country’s infrastructure development, noting, ‘emerging smart grid technologies offer tremendous potential improvements in energy efficiency and supply reliability.’

“As the Asian market continues to introduce smart grid programs at an increasing pace, we are seeing a lot of activity. Our need to have an executive and an office on the ground was apparent, and we are excited to welcome Mr. Leung to the team,” said Jeff Gray, Sr. VP of Sales, Marketing and Business Development at On-Ramp. “We are going to see even more pilot projects over the next few years as the disruptive nature of the Smart Grid and all it encompasses continues to take hold worldwide. On-Ramp is excited to partake in this paradigm shift.”
