The PJM Board today officially welcomed Andrew L. Ott as PJM’s new president and chief executive officer after a six-month transition working closely with retiring CEO Terry Boston. Boston will serve as CEO emeritus until his retirement on December 31.
“The smooth and successful transition has resulted in this being the right time for Andy to take the helm,” said Howard Schneider, PJM Board chairman. “Terry Boston’s service to PJM and stakeholders has set a high standard. The board and I are confident that Andy will continue to ensure the stakeholder collaboration and outstanding performance for which PJM is known while establishing his own visionary leadership.”
Since being named to succeed Boston on April 29, 2015, Ott has been meeting with PJM stakeholders including members, state and federal regulators, employees and industry leaders.
