APPA President and CEO Mark Crisson announced yesterday that he will retire from the association, effective April 1, 2014. "I have been associated with public power for 35 years," Crisson said in a March 14 letter to the APPA board of directors. "It has been an honor and a privilege to conclude my career as the head of its national organization." 

"We have accomplished much in the past five years," Crisson told the board. "I am confident that the APPA team will continue to strengthen the organization and improve the quality of service to our members."

"We are grateful for the strong leadership Mark has provided during his term as CEO and thank him for his willingness to serve one more year to facilitate a smooth transition and provide us the time we need to search for and secure a new CEO for the association," said Phyllis Currie, chair of the APPA board of directors and general manager of Pasadena Water & Power in California. "On behalf of the APPA board of directors, we thank Mark for his exemplary service and wish him well in his retirement." 

Prior to joining APPA’s staff, Crisson spent almost 30 years at Tacoma, Wash., Public Utilities, serving as its CEO/director of utilities for 15 years.
