Southwest Power Pool (PPP) has named Elizabeth Moore of New York to its board of directors.
Moore will assume her new role Tuesday, Oct. 27.
“Liz will make an invaluable addition to our independent board,” SPP president and CEO Barbara Sugg said in a statement. “She not only has a strong background in the utility industry and experience in the legal profession and government affairs, but she’s also thoughtful, personable and quick. She’ll fit right in at our stakeholder meetings, I’m certain.”
Most recently, Moore served as senior vice president and general counsel for Consolidated Edison Inc. (Con Ed), an investor-owned utility company. She previously served as an attorney for American Express, as a partner at Nixon Peabody LLP and as counsel to New York Governor Mario Cuomo.
Moore has been recognized by multiple publications for her work. She was named one of the “Most Powerful Women in Corporate America” by Black Enterprise in 2019. She was also named to the “Top Black Layers” by Savoy and the “Lawyers of Color Fourth Annual Power List” in 2015.
She holds an undergraduate degree in labor relations from Cornell University and a law degree from St. John’s University.
