Senet’s EnerTrac Tank Monitoring Solution Acquired by Independent Technologies

WESROC Division of Independent Technologies expands tank monitoring portfolio with solution run on Senet’s low power wide area network

Portsmouth, NH – (December 11, 2017) – Senet, a leading provider of cloud-based software, global connectivity service platforms and network build-outs for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its fuel delivery and monitoring solution, EnerTrac, to the WESROC division of Independent Technologies.

After building EnerTrac into an industry leading productivity enhancing solution for the propane and heating oil tank monitoring markets, Senet is ideally positioned to deliver the solution to a company in a strong industry position to significantly increase market penetration and further advance its value in the tank monitoring market. As part of the agreement, Senet will provide critical network connectivity and build out services to WESROC, on an exclusive basis, as the company expands its portfolio to include LoRaWAN monitors and low cost, long range LoRaWAN connectivity.

EnerTrac optimizes delivery efficiency by using affordable monitors to capture customer fuel tank levels throughout the day. This data is transmitted over the Senet network directly to the customer’s back-office software as actionable intelligence. Companies use EnerTrac to save on fuel delivery costs, more accurately forecast fuel usage, reduce the carbon footprint of their delivery fleet and to improve their overall customer experience.

“We’ve gained significant knowledge from building the EnerTrac solution from the ground up and have leveraged those learnings to assist in the development of other highly scalable, secure and cost effective IoT connectivity platforms and applications,” said Senet CEO Bruce Chatterley. “Following this sale, we look forward to a strong and long-lasting partnership with WESROC, providing them with LoRaWAN connectivity solutions to help expand and grow their tank monitoring product line in North America and around the world.”

WESROC has a broad range of monitoring solutions that are adaptable to the specific needs of companies that store and distribute propane and refined fuels, with capabilities to measure, monitor, track and report. The company has a reputation for strong engineering and excellent customer service, while manufacturing high quality, durable and reliable hardware.

“The acquisition of EnerTrac further establishes Independent Technologies as the industry leader in tank monitoring systems,” said Hank Smith, CEO and President of Independent Technologies. “This is a significant addition to our product line which allows us to fit nearly any need or budget. We look forward to working with Senet to expand deployments of the EnerTrac solution and to meet the growing demand for automated tank monitoring solutions in North America and around the world.”

Fenway Park to Host 135th Edition of ‘The Game,’ As Harvard and Yale Bring Storied Football Rivalry to the Iconic Home of the Boston Red Sox

City of Boston, Fenway Sports Management announce nation’s second-oldest Division I college football rivalry to take place at Major League Baseball’s oldest operating ballpark

 BOSTON, MA – Fenway Sports Management and the City of Boston today announced that one of college football’s most storied and tradition-laden rivalries will be played out on the Fenway Park gridiron in 2018. The 135th rendition of Harvard and Yale’s football rivalry will be played in front of the “Green Monster” at the home of the Boston Red Sox on November 17, 2018. The game will also mark the 50th anniversary of the epic 1968 clash between the two Ivy League schools, which famously ended in a 29-29 tie.

The announcement comes on the heels of a busy off-season at Fenway, which included the 2017 Fenway Gridiron Series presented by Your Call Football – three collegiate football games featuring six of New England’s major college programs, the AIG Fenway Hurling Classic and Irish Festival and a series of high school football games.

“The Harvard Yale football game is a classic match up, and Fenway Park is a beloved Boston landmark and classic in its own right,” said Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh. “Boston looks forward to hosting Harvard, and all visitors, in 2018 for this iconic game.”

Harvard and Yale first met on November 13, 1875, in the first of 134 battles on the gridiron with Harvard winning by a score of 4-0. The format of the game pre-dated the modern football scoring system and resembled rugby more than today’s version of American football. Yale leads the series, 67-59-8. The only rivalry in college football older than The Game is Yale’s annual meeting with Princeton, which began in 1873. In terms of games played in a rivalry, Harvard-Yale (134 games) ranks behind only Lafayette-Lehigh (153) and Yale-Princeton (141).

“It’s an honor to host one of the most prestigious rivalries in American collegiate athletics,” said Boston Red Sox President & CEO Sam Kennedy. “This is one of the most anticipated sporting event in the Northeast, and I know everyone at Fenway Park and Fenway Sports Management will work tirelessly to make the 135th edition of The Game a memorable experience for the players, the coaches, and the alumni. I can think of no place more fitting to host this historic game.”

The 1968 matchup ranks ninth on ESPN’s list of greatest college football ties ever and was the last tie in the rivalry’s history, as subsequent changes to overtime rules eliminated the possibility. The Bulldogs carried a comfortable lead (29-13) heading into the game’s final minute, but Harvard rallied with an 86-yard touchdown drive, then recovered an on-side kick, followed by another touchdown and a game tying two-point conversion as time expired.

“We are very excited to face our historic rival at Fenway Park, a landmark of New England sports,” said Bob Scalise, Harvard’s John D. Nichols ’53 Family Director of Athletics. “This will be a special experience for our student-athletes, student body, alumni and fans, and we are proud to partner with Fenway Sports Management for “The Game” next year.”

The football rivalry between Harvard’s Crimson and Yale’s Bulldogs is among the most revered on the American athletic scene for its combination of passion and purity to the sport, as it established the template for American college football. ‘The Game’ annually serves as the most prominent athletic contest between the Ivy institutions and is the season finale in football for the two schools. In the most recent edition, Yale defeated Harvard, 24-3, on November 18 at the Yale Bowl to finish the season 9-1 and capture the 2017 Ivy League crown.

“We are excited to play next year’s game against Harvard at one of the most iconic venues in all of sports,” said Yale Athletic Director Tom Beckett. “Fenway Park will provide an incredible stage for one of college football’s most storied rivalries. This will be an experience our student-athletes, coaches, alumni, and fans will not soon forget.”

Fenway Park has a long history with football dating back to its opening in 1912. The ballpark was commonly transformed to the gridiron for high school and college football games throughout the early 20th Century and was home to the Boston Patriots from 1963-68. In November 2015, football returned to Fenway Park for the first time since 1968 when Notre Dame hosted Boston College in their Shamrock Series game. The Harvard-Yale contest in 2018 will mark the second straight year that two Ivy League schools compete on the Fenway pitch. Serving as the opener of the 2017 Fenway Gridiron Series trilogy, Dartmouth beat Brown, 33-10, on November 10.

“Over the last three years, Fenway Park has hosted four Division I football games, including Notre Dame and Boston College in 2015 and the three just-concluded games as part of the Fenway Gridiron Series,” said Mark Lev, Managing Director of Fenway Sports Management. “Having a staff experienced in creating a diverse array of major events is key to producing a marquee football game like Harvard-Yale at Fenway Park. Our staff has first-hand knowledge for the passion of the college teams competing and the fans that follow them. That knowhow will prove invaluable as we eagerly anticipate hosting one of the great sports spectacles in America, ‘The Game’ between Harvard and Yale next November 17.”

Kickoff time and ticket information will be announced at a later date. For further information fans can visit www.redsox.com/thegame.

Seizing that momentum, this year’s event will be bigger and better and another epic party.

Foundation To Be Named Later Launches BASE Chicago at Special Wrigley Field Ceremony

FTBNL co-founders Paul & Theo Epstein Award a $150,000 grant
for Chicago Expansion of Critically Acclaimed Urban
Baseball Program focused on Youth Mentoring and Training

CHICAGO – Foundation To Be Named Later co-founders Paul and Theo Epstein gathered with Chicago business and community leaders for a special Wrigley Field ceremony to launch the Chicago expansion of The BASE, a program that combines baseball, academics and mentoring to transform the lives of urban youth. Notable baseball luminaries included Hall of Fame sportswriter Peter Gammons and representatives of Chicago’s Garfield Park Baseball Program Frank Brim and Malik Seaton who were joined by The BASE Founder Robert Lewis Jr. for the special announcement.

Chicago Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein and his brother Paul Epstein, a social worker, funded the program’s expansion to Chicago with a $150,000 grant from The Foundation To Be Named Later, a nonprofit organization they launched in 2005 to raise funds and awareness for nonprofit agencies, working on the front lines, serving youth and families from disadvantaged neighborhoods in Boston and Chicago.

“We’ve had the opportunity to witness firsthand the results BASE has delivered and the impact the program has had on the lives of students through our annual Urban Classic, and the work they do both on and off the field is impressive,” said FTBNL co-founder Paul Epstein. “Partnering with results driven organizations that have a proven track record of making a tangible difference in the lives of youth in our cities is precisely what we had in mind when we launched the foundation, so helping to extend The BASE program to student athletes in Chicago is perfectly aligned with our mission.”

The BASE is a premier national urban youth training academy that provides student athletes in Boston with year-round, superior baseball and academic training. The program leverages the power and passion of sports to transform the lives of urban youth by providing opportunity, education, training and encouragement to create a winning game plan for life and reach their fullest potential.

Since its inception, the program has served more than 8,000 boys and girls on more than 600 teams, playing not just at home in Boston, but in tournaments across the country — from Florida to Nevada and in between. Hall of Fame sportswriter Peter Gammons called The BASE Astros “hands down, the best urban baseball team in America.”

“The BASE aims to shift the national mindset about what it takes for urban youth to succeed and to build a movement of citizens who are committed to their success,” said The BASE Founder and President Robert Lewis Jr. “Through high quality baseball, academics, and training, we operate a premier national urban youth training academy with a methodology that cultivates excellence, belief and love. We are making the invisible, visible and shining a spotlight on the limitless potential of our young people.”

With the grant in hand, The BASE, which began in Boston will expand their program to Chicago’s greater West Side, leveraging the power and passion of sports to transform the lives of urban youth through a focus on baseball, academics and mentoring. For the past six (6) years FTBNL has collaborated with The BASE and created the Urban Classic baseball game, which brings together elite youth urban Boston and

Chicago teams at the University of Illinois Chicago Curtis Granderson Field. The Urban Classic baseball game has become a staple of FTBNL’s Chicago’s Hot Stove Cool Music weekend, celebrating music, baseball and giving back. The official opening of The Base Chicago will take place at the Foundation To Be Named Later’s annual Hot Stove Cool Music Chicago weekend, June 8-9, 2018.

The Foundation To Be Named Later raises funds and awareness for local nonprofits that work with youth in Chicago and Boston from disadvantaged neighborhoods. FTBNL raises funds through fun and unique events that focus on baseball and music, two of Paul and Theo’s passions. FTBNL has raised more than $9 million for Boston and Chicago nonprofit organizations since 2005.

In addition to the $150,000 grant from Foundation To Be Named Later, Good Sports has announced a $50,000 equipment donation to The BASE Chicago after officials were able to determine immediate equipment needs for 2018. Toby Emms, Chicago Market Director for Good Sports was on hand to make the special announcement.

With a 7,100 square-foot training and studying facility in Boston, The BASE continues to achieve its goal of becoming a nationally recognized and certified training academy, combining sports and academic opportunities to transform the lives of African-American and Latino boys and girls throughout the country. Thanks to this grant and the donation from Good Sports, student athletes in Chicago will benefit from The BASE program.

The BASE Astros also were named “2013 Triple Crown Sports’ US Baseball Champions,” and “2012 Team of The Year”- standing alone among 40,000 other teams across the country. Six former BASE – and Astros – student athletes have competed at the Major League Baseball level: Manny Delcarmen (Boston Red Sox), Juan Carlos Portes (Minnesota Twins), Nelfi Zapata (New York Mets), Eddy Morrobel (Texas Rangers), Jamill Moquete (Baltimore Orioles) and Calvin Graves (Chicago Cubs). Since 2014, more than 130 BASE school athletes have matriculated to college.

‘Girls Who Invest’ Founder and Chair Seema R. Hingorani Discusses Mission to Set Women Up For Success in Asset Management

Entrepreneur Shares Goals for Women in Financial Services at BNY Mellon Wealth Management “Game Changers” Event

BOSTON, November 3, 2017 – BNY Mellon Wealth Management, a global investment management and investment services company, hosted Girls Who Invest Founder and Chair Seema R. Hingorani for an interactive discussion as part of its “Game Changers” speaker series. At the event, held on November 2 at the BNY Mellon Wealth Management offices in Boston, Hingorani discussed Girls Who Invest’s mission to increase the number of women in asset management. The discussion was moderated by Vicary Graham, BNY Mellon Wealth Management president, New England.

While fields such as academia, medicine and law have become increasingly more diverse, asset management has lagged behind. In fact, over the last six years, the number of female investment managers in the U.S. has fallen. Today, diversity in asset management worldwide is at a startling low, with women and minorities running just 1.1% of the industry’s $71.4 trillion of assets[1]. Hingorani is committed to increasing both the supply and demand sides of the issue, with a goal of having 30 percent of the world’s investable capital managed by women by the year 2030.

When Hingorani was CIO for New York City Retirement Systems ($160 billion in assets), she recognized the dearth of women and minorities on investment teams, as well as the pipeline problem holding the industry back. She founded non-profit Girls Who Invest in 2015, in order to provide more college-aged women with the education, experience and community they need to launch a successful career in the industry. To date, Girls Who Invest has empowered 382 young women, sending a total of 90 undergraduates through their flagship 10-week Summer Intensive Program and another 292 through two additional online learning programs which launched this summer.

In her remarks Hingorani highlighted why it is critically important to bring diversity to the stewardship of capital and the solutions needed to change the face of the industry.

“We were honored to offer our guests a glimpse into the important work Seema is doing to inspire more girls and women to choose a career in investment management,” said Graham. “Her work to grow the pipeline of talented and motivated young women and prepare them with the knowledge and experience necessary to succeed is crucial to the future of our industry. We are pleased she was willing to share her insights and perspectives with BNY Mellon Wealth Management clients and guests.”

“During my time with the New York City Pension Funds, I heard from the leadership of many asset management firms that they wanted to diversify their investment teams, but they weren’t getting resumes from women. So I decided it was time to fix this issue. And that is what we have been doing through Girls Who Invest. We find and train the best and brightest young college women from diverse backgrounds across the country and secure for them paid internships at leading asset management firms around the world. It’s a simple approach and it seems to be working well which is very exciting,” said Hingorani.

Now in its second year, the “Game Changers” series explores women’s entrepreneurial and leadership successes through conversations with exceptional women who have forged their own paths and have insights to share.

BNY Mellon Wealth Management Named Best Private Bank in U.S. for Customer Service by Global Private Banking Awards

BOSTON – BNY Mellon Wealth Management is proud to announce that it has been named Best Private Bank in the U.S. for Customer Service by the Global Private Banking Awards. Now in its ninth year, the awards program is organized by Financial Times publications Professional Wealth Management and The Banker. The awards recognize and reward excellence in wealth management.

“This award affirms and reflects a key tenet of our approach – helping clients to succeed and meet their financial goals,” said Don Heberle, CEO of BNY Mellon Wealth Management. “This recognition also speaks to the quality and dedication of our people, who put the needs of our diverse client base at the center of everything they do.  We do not take this success and our 95% client satisfaction rating for granted[1],” stated Heberle, “and will every day continue to earn this recognition and deepen client relationships, particularly as client expectations continue to evolve.”

From May to July of 2017, private banks were invited to apply to the Global Private Banking Awards. Each institution provided growth and performance measures and an executive summary outlining the bank’s qualifications. The submissions were judged by an expert panel of 15 industry professionals based in North America, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Banks were judged on the progress made in their business & growth strategies, their ability to boost inflows and profits, as well as their client relationship management strategies and adaptability.

The awards were officially announced at a gala dinner and ceremony held on Thursday, October 26 in London. The Global Private Banking Awards report will publish in the November issue of The Banker. Additionally, the quantitative data from award applications will be analyzed in the forthcoming annual Private Banking Key Performance Indicators Benchmark study, carried out by Scorpio Partnership.
