Boston honored by Tennessee Governor

Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam honored Terry Boston, PJM CEO emeritus, last week, lauding him for his years of service starting in Tennessee and his numerous accomplishments in the electric power industry. The governor honored Boston in a letter presented December 4.

“From your Smith County upbringing through your leadership as CEO of the largest transmission grid in North America, your efforts have improved complex systems that impact the daily lives of virtually every American,” Haslam said.

The governor said that Boston devoted his talents in public service with “a high calling – bringing reliable electricity to millions of Americans that improves their lives and economic well-being.”

Boston will retire Dec. 31, 2015, after leading PJM for the past eight years.
