Futura Systems COO Adam Dinges to Transition to Meridian Cooperative as CMO

Atlanta, GA – August 20th, 2021 Futura Systems has announced that Adam Dinges, Chief Operations Officer, will be transitioning into a new role as Chief Marketing Officer of the Meridian Cooperative effective September 1st, 2021. During his 9-year tenure as Chief Operations Officer, Adam helped to build a unique culture of success at Futura, overseeing dramatic growth while guiding the company to new heights through their acquisition by SEDC, now known as the Meridian Cooperative. Futura Systems is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Meridian Cooperative.

“The Meridian Enterprise, comprised of the Meridian Cooperative, Futura Systems, and Arista Information Systems, represents the complete full-service suite of utility technology solutions”, says Dinges. “My move to Meridian will allow for a more robust market strategy that will allow each of these companies to display their individual strengths while seamlessly uniting to provide the best-of-breed technology stack the utility services industry has to offer.”

Adam’s previous role at Futura will be succeeded by Chris Lahman, former VP of Business Operations, who will assume the title of Chief Information Officer. Adam Bruce, former Mobile Workforce Manager at Futura will become the VP of Business Operations.

“I’m very excited by what this means for the entire Meridian Enterprise”, says Lahman. “Adam’s [Dinges] guidance is a big part of the reason we’ve had so much success to this point at Futura and I have absolute faith in his ability to bring that level of dedication to any role he has. This transition was very natural for everyone involved and I can’t wait to start sharing the results with our members and customers.”
