ComTech Advisory Launches Prestigious CTRM Thought Leaders Program

New Program to Recognize Key Contributors to the Industry

Houston, TX and Prague, Czech Republic March 10, 2015 Commodity Technology Advisory llc (ComTech), the leading analyst firm for energy and commodity trading and risk management (E/CTRM) technologies, is pleased to announce a new program that recognizes those individuals that have made, and continue to make, significant contributions to the advancement of the technologies and related business processes that are a critical component of commodity management, trading, marketing, and risk management. Identified as CTRM Thought Leaders, these individuals have been key contributors to the industry over the last decade or longer. As a group, the CTRM Thought Leaders program will include business leaders, regulators, consultants, and software vendors.

“ComTech has identified and invited a select number of individuals to join the CTRM Thought Leadership program as charter members,” said Patrick Reames, Managing Partner, ComTech. “We’re pleased to recognize these people and to highlight their contributions to the advancement of CTRM. We will be announcing their names shortly, with additional members to be added and announced over the coming year.”

Active membership of the CTRM Thought Leaders panel will be limited to 25 individuals, each of whom will be featured prominently on the programs’ web pages within the website. Members have agreed to participate in the program for at least 12-months, but even after their tenure on the panel expires, these individuals may always refer to themselves as a recognized ComTech CTRM Thought Leader.

“The CTRM Thought Leaders have agreed to provide steering guidance to ComTech research efforts, and to share their knowledge and experience via a number of ComTech deliverables, such as our ComTechAlert newsletter,” said Dr. Gary M. Vasey, Managing Partner of ComTech.
