Houston, Texas (PressExposure) April 21, 2011 -- Ampegy LLC, the network marketing channel of Spark Energy, announced Todd Thoman as President. Mr. Thoman will bring a unique blend of sales, marketing, and energy industry experience and community relations expertise to the role.
This move comes just as Ampegy is completing its launch phase, which included successful kick-off events in Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco, and Manhattan which in-turn set the stage for an outstanding Lift Off Event in The Woodlands, Texas.
"Ampegy is about to explode" said Keith Maxwell, Founder of Ampegy and Founder and Chairman of Spark Energy. "Todd's proven strength in business development is just what the organization needs."
As President, Mr. Thoman will be responsible for setting strategy, recruiting representatives, opening new markets, and ensuring a quality service experience for Ampegy customers.
"This is such an exciting time to be part of the Ampegy team," said Mr. Thoman. "Energy deregulation means so much opportunity for so many people in the areas where it is in effect. The country hasn't seen this sort of economic opportunity since the days of telecommunications deregulation. We have the leadership, products, and support to help those who are dedicated to success to achieve it"
Mr. Thoman was previously Senior Vice President of Human Resources and Organizational Development at Spark Energy and was responsible for invigorating Spark Energy's corporate culture.

He obtained a BA degree from the University of Southern California and currently lives in Houston with his family.
Mr. Thoman succeeds Waters Davis who will resume his role as Executive Vice President of Operations, and Administration of Spark Energy.
