ReliabilityFirst (RF) has partnered with Atlanta-based
CarterBaldwin Executive Search to identify an independent Board Director to
join its governing body.
RF’s mission is to ensure the reliability, security, and
resilience of the electric grid in its region which covers 13 states and the
District of Columbia, stretching from the Atlantic Seaboard to Lake Michigan.
In addition to a reliable and secure electric grid being
fundamental to our most basic daily routines and needs, our economy, national
security, and public welfare depend on it. To achieve its mission, RF employs a
diverse team of experts across numerous disciplines to address the complex and
dynamic challenges the grid presents. RF is uniquely positioned to work closely
with transmission, generation, and other power companies, as well as the
federal government, to help identify and protect against operational risks and
physical and cyber security threats to the grid. The confluence of the
evolving state of the electric grid, the essential nature of its mission, and
its skilled workforce provide RF the opportunity to make a positive impact for
the greater good.
RF is one of only six companies across North America that is
responsible for this important work under Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
(FERC) approved delegation agreements with the North American Electric
Reliability Corporation (NERC).
RF has a hybrid Board of Directors that is made up of three
independent directors and 11 stakeholder directors, as well as RF’s President
and CEO as a non-voting ex officio member. One of RF’s independent directors
was recently selected to serve on the NERC Board of Directors, and RF is
conducting a search for his replacement, with a particular focus on experience
outside the utility industry and on government policy expertise.
Chris Guiney, Partner and Energy and Infrastructure Practice Leader at
CarterBaldwin, will lead the search. For more information, he can be
reached via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
