Peace Software Secures Top Talent


Peace Software Secures Top Talent To Lead World’s Largest CIS Development Team for Utilities

Peace Software, the world’s largest utility CIS (Customer Information System) developer, has appointed Steve Carpenter as Application Development Manager. Carpenter is based at Peace Software’s Energy™ Development Centre in Auckland where he leads more than 200 people dedicated to application development and testing of the Energy suite.

Carpenter joins Peace Software from Cap Gemini Ernst & Young, where he was Director for Advanced Development and Integration, Australia and New Zealand and headed their Advanced Development Centre in Auckland. During this seven-year stint, Carpenter advised major corporate and government clients on systems solutions to complex business problems. Additionally, he provided guidance on best practises in advanced development and integration to a wide variety of clients in the financial services, transport, manufacturing, government and health sectors. Microsoft recognised Carpenter by appointing him as MSDN Regional Director, one of only 120 worldwide.

“I joined Peace Software because it’s simply a fantastic opportunity to be involved with New Zealand’s largest software developer, which is competing successfully in a global market,” says Carpenter. “The size of Peace Software’s development centre and our sole focus on the energy industry enable us to react quickly to client needs and continually innovate to maintain our lead. My focus is to streamline Peace Software’s world-class development operations further to ensure that we continue anticipating industry trends and delivering innovative software for deregulated, regulated and transitioning utility markets.”

Ross Mathieson, Peace Software General Manager New Zealand, says “Steve’s industry reputation and knowledge are enviable and he has a proven track record in leading large-scale best-practice development projects to time and budget.”

Steve has also worked for Prism Group, Logica (UK) and Computing Devices (UK).

Steve has a B.Eng (Hons) in Digital Engineering from Sunderland University (UK).
