Our chief consultant, Dennie Robinson started utility consulting in Utah in 1991 working for a subdivision of Sudeco USA Inc., our current parent company. Sudeco is now owned by Dennie and Lance Livingston and is now operating under the DBA of Nationwide Utility Consultants.
Mr. Robinson has managed the consulting function as long as the company has been in existence. Mr. Robinson has an MBA from the University of Utah. Mr. Robinson worked for Union Pacific for a number of years. He eventually became their chief pricing officer managing their pricing function from a period when their rates were largely regulated to almost totally deregulated. Their rates were regulated by the Interstate Commerce Commission as well as by state public utility commissions. One of his roles, at Union Pacific, was to interface with 26 state public utility commissions. Those same state public utility commissions still regulate many of the utility rates available to our current clients. Knowing his way around the regulatory processes has been very beneficial as Mr. Robinson has served our clients.
In 2015 Lance Livingston partnered with Mr. Robinson. Mr. Livingston has a Master in accounting with a minor in business. Mr. Livingston started his career in public accounting as an auditor. He brings extensive experience to the table in auditing. In addition Mr. Livingston has over 40 years experience in real estate development and management that has been a great asset to Nationwide Utility Consultant’s efforts in the last several years.
Since 1991, our company has worked for many government agencies and businesses, collectively saving tens of millions of dollars in utility costs.
