“I had the idea of doing billing the right way. … Pure and simple,” says President and Founder Charles Bianco of starting Champion Utility.
Champion Utility was born after Bianco spent nearly two decades in the sub-metering industry. So even though Champion is barely a decade old, the man responsible for Champion’s inception is a sub-metering veteran.
Charles Bianco first dipped his toes in the proverbial pool of sub-metering during a time when the term and concept were relatively unknown. In fact, sub-metering didn’t rear its technological head until the mid-to-late ’80s. But that didn’t deter Bianco from spotting the value behind sub-metering all those years ago.
Bianco recognized that by measuring tenant consumption, tenants would ultimately begin to consume more responsibility, and thus realized sub-metering was a step forward in energy management solutions.
But after nearly two decades in the industry, Bianco also recognized there was something amiss in the industry. Transparency, accountability, responsiveness and overall great customer service all seemed to be lacking.
So Bianco set out to open a sub-metering company of his own. And in April 2005, Champion Utility Sub-Metering Solutions was born.
Originally operating out of Terrell, TX, Champion Utility relocated its headquarters to South Florida in September 2007. At that time, Bianco approached long-time friend and esteemed colleague Nicholas Vassalotti to be the company’s Chief Operating Officer. With more than 20 years of experience under his belt as an accountant, CPM and licensed real estate broker, Vassalotti was perfect for the job.
Together they have built a company they’re proud to call their own. Champion’s team has the understanding and expertise to guide its clients to the most cost effective sub-metering plan. From equipment installation, retrofits and service to outstanding customer service, honest billing and transparency, Champion Utility provides a turnkey sub-metering package.
