MetraTech Corp., the innovative charging, billing, settlement and customer care product provider, has strengthened its leadership team with two key executives. The additions are a response to the recent wins in the communications, transportation, and SaaS markets, the new regional headquarters in Asia Pacific and Latin America, and the dramatic increase in employee count.
Joining MetraTech as Vice President, Professional Services is Chevy Vithiananthan. Chevy is responsible for the company’s Professional Services Group globally. He brings to MetraTech over 17 years of leadership experience in professional services, corporate strategy, business development, and application strategy and development.

Chevy’s professional expertise spans high-volume systems design, implementation, integration, test, production operations, and ongoing maintenance. Most recently, Chevy managed a 100+ person professional service and application delivery team across the Americas for Comverse Technologies. His past clients have included eBay, British Telecom, France Telecom, Optus Communications, Embratel and Bellsouth International. He holds both Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Commented Mark Dudman, MetraTech’s Executive Vice President—Engineering and Technical Operations: “Chevy’s decision to join MetraTech not only brings experienced, high quality leadership to our Professional Services Group, but the fact that we are now able to attract experts of Chevy’s caliber to join us underlines both our determination to deliver results for our customers and also the impact our company is making in the market. I am confident that Chevy will help our team to scale effectively to meet the growing needs of MetraNet users.”
At the same time, joining as Vice President, Human Resources is Bob Clancy. Bob is responsible for the company’s HR initiatives on a worldwide basis.

Both of these organisations sold software, provided implementation services and supported a growing customer base. Previously, he held HR roles at ImagiTex, Inc. and GCA Corporation. Bob holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Lowell.
