New York Gov. Kathy Hochul on July 20 recommended Justin Driscoll to serve as President and CEO of the New York Power Authority (NYPA).
Driscoll was appointed by NYPA's Board of Trustees to serve as Interim President and CEO in October. The governor's recommendation comes after a national search and recognizes the work Driscoll has accomplished in the previous year, NYPA said.
Driscoll previously served as chief legal officer of NYPA.
Before joining NYPA, he was engaged in the private practice of law and represented clients that included Fortune 500 companies, governmental entities and energy companies, in complex commercial litigation and regulatory matters.
Driscoll serves on several boards including The Alliance to Save Energy, New York City's Urban Green Council, the Large Public Power Council, and the World Resources Institute's Global Energy Advisory Board.
