SAN JOSE, Calif. Sept. 27, 2016 — Peaxy, a data access and analytics platform company currently working with General Electric and other Fortune 100 companies, welcomed two experienced former GE executives to its team as special advisers.
Gary Leonard spent 34 years at GE and led its $3 billion Distributed Power Gas Turbine business from 2013 to 2016. He brings deep expertise in research, engineering, product management and development, and power plant design. Leonard led a global team of 400 engineers focused on developing GE’s next generation of aircraft engines, gas turbines, diesel engines, wind turbines and solar/geothermal thermal products. He has a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Stanford University.
Jim McGlothlin spent eight years at GE as a General Manager in the pipeline inspection and Aero Energy businesses. After his tenure at GE he ran Wood Group Power Solutions’ EPC business. He has spent his entire career in the power generation and oil & gas industries, including new project development, rotating equipment experience and operations.
Both Leonard and McGlothlin will strengthen links Peaxy has with key energy and aviation players and expands Peaxy’s reach into other important Industrial Internet areas. “What makes Peaxy special is the combination of data architecture expertise combined with deep industrial know-how,” said Peaxy CEO and President Manuel Terranova. “Adding Gary and Jim to the team further deepens our domain experience in industrial analytics.”
