Urjanet, the leading global provider of automated utility data, today announced that Peter (Pete) Kight, founder, former chairman and CEO of CheckFree, is joining its Board of Directors.

Kight founded CheckFree in 1981 with a vision of providing electronic funds transfer services to businesses and consumers. Over the following 27 years it became the standard for electronic Bill Payment. CheckFree, with revenues of $1.1 Billion, was sold to Fiserv, Inc. in December of 2007 for $4.4 Billion.

“Pete is a legend in the Fintech industry and we are excited to welcome him to Urjanet’s board,” said Sanjoy Malik, CEO and Chairman of the Urjanet Board of Directors. “We believe Pete’s strong experience will be extremely valuable as Urjanet continues to grow around the world and expand into new markets.”

Mr. Kight is also a member of the Board of Directors at Blackbaud, Huntington Bancshares Incorporated, MX, Insightpool, and Kabbage. He previously served on the Board of Directors for Fiserv (2010-2012) after his tenure as the company’s vice chairman (2007–2010), along with Akamai, Inc. Technologies (2004-2012) and Manhattan Associates (2007-2011).

“Urjanet is one of the most exciting stories in big data,” said Mr. Kight. “I look forward to joining the board as Urjanet continues to build a global network of utility data sources and provide the world’s biggest brands with access to data that is otherwise tremendously difficult to obtain and manage.”

Urjanet’s Board of Directors also includes Sanjoy Malik, CEO and Chairman; David Radcliffe, the retired Chairman, President and CEO of Southern Company; Sig Mosley, Managing Partner of Mosley Ventures; and Steve Fredrick, General Partner with Grotech Ventures.
