(Host) Central Vermont Public Service has named a career utility executive as its new president.
Larry Reilly will start work March 1 as the CEO of the state’s largest electric utility. Reilly, who is 55, is a former president of distribution companies at New England Electric System. He also served as executive vice president of National Grid.
Reilly says he’s been able to observe CVPS over time, and is impressed with the company’s quality of customer service, among other assets.
(Reilly) "So it’s a great company – with, also, probably about the cleanest power supply anywhere in the country, with the amount of low carbon resources they have between Hydro-Quebec and Vermont Yankee."
(Host) Reilly succeeds Bob Young who will retire in May. The new chief executive will work under Young for a two month transition period.
