Atlantic City Electric announced Gary Stockbridge is the new region president. He replaces Vince Maione, who retired from the company in March.
Stockbridge, currently region president for Delmarva Power in Delaware and Maryland, will add the Atlantic City Electric region president role, effective immediately.
In more than 12 years as Delmarva Power Region President, Stockbridge helped the Pepco and now Exelon utility navigate a tricky regulatory environment and a move toward renewable power sources.
“Gary is a proven leader, driving positive outcomes with our state and local stakeholders that have helped shape the Delaware and Maryland energy landscapes and increase value for our customers,” said Melissa Lavinson, senior vice president of Governmental and External Affairs for Pepco Holdings, which includes Atlantic City Electric and Delmarva Power. “Gary has worked in New Jersey before and we look forward to leveraging his deep knowledge of the industry to help drive those initiatives that will transform the energy experience for customers in the Atlantic City Electric and Delmarva Power service areas.”
In his expanded role, Stockbridge will serve as the point person for managing relationships with state and local stakeholders, community leaders, and business, consumer and nonprofit organizations for Atlantic City Electric and Delmarva Power. He also will be responsible for overseeing and driving company initiatives and issues management programs, a release stated.
“We are pleased to welcome Gary back to New Jersey and look forward to working with him to help implement those initiatives that will help drive South Jersey’s clean energy economy,” said Debra DiLorenzo, CEO of the Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey and Pepco Holdings Board Member.
Stockbridge has nearly 35 years of experience in the energy industry, nearly all with the Exelon family of companies, the nation’s largest energy service company.
He spent nearly 15 years with Philadelphia-based PECO before moving to Delmarva Power in 1997 to run the competitive retail energy business, selling electricity and natural gas to customers in the northeastern United States.
Delmarva Power acquired Atlantic City Electric in the 1990s and for a time renamed itself Conectiv, prior to being acquired by Washington, DC-based Pepco, which is now part of Exelon.
Stockbridge was vice president of Customer Care, a position that was based in Carney’s Point, NJ that had him overseeing the customer service function, before being named region president of Delmarva Power in 2005.
In two additional moves, Susan Coan, Atlantic City Electric region vice president and Glenn Moore Delmarva Power region vice president, will be taking on expanded roles increasing their oversight of regional stakeholder and community initiatives.
Coan has been with Atlantic City Electric for 20 years.
Moore has been with Delmarva Power for 33 years and has managed company initiatives.
He is active in the community serving as the President of the Wilmington Renaissance Corporation and is a past President of the Boy Scouts of the Delmarva Council. Moore is currently a Board Member of the American Red Cross and Junior Achievement of Delaware. Both Coan and Moore will report to Stockbridge. Their appointments are effective immediately.
