Bruce Campbell, vice president – resource integration, of Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) has been appointed as the organization’s new president and CEO, effective May 1, 2013.
He will replace Paul Murphy on his retirement at the end of April.
“Bruce has extensive experience in a number of aspects of the electricity sector and has been a strong advocate for the IESO with government and stakeholders on a broad range of issues and opportunities,” said IESO chair Tim O’Neill. “Over the last few years, he has shaped the efforts needed to integrate the province’s renewable forms of generation and helped place the IESO in the position it is in today – ready to manage the new supply mix, reliably and efficiently.”
A member of the Law Society of Upper Canada, Bruce graduated from the Osgoode Hall Law School. He joined the IESO in 2000 as vice president, corporate and legal affairs and later served as vice president, corporate relations and market development. He is also vice-chair of the Board and member of the Audit Committee, of the Northeast Power Coordinating Council, Inc. (NPCC) and is the IESO’s representative on the Stakeholder Advisory Committee.
