MISO re-elects two board members

MISO members re-elected board members Michael J. Curran and Eugene W. Zeltmann at the regional grid operator’s annual members’ meeting. Both joined the MISO board of directors in 2007 and will begin their new three-year terms in January 2013.

Michael J. Curran, chairman-elect for 2013, has served on the board’s audit and finance committee and the corporate governance and strategic planning committee since 2007.

Additionally, in his role as chair of the board’s markets committee since 2008, Curran has helped oversee MISO’s market operations and MISO’s Independent Market Monitor, exercising the committee’s oversight responsibilities and fostering synergies to encourage management and the IMM to further technological solutions as well as practical and reasonable market improvements.

Curran, who previously served as chairman and CEO of the Boston Stock Exchange, also serves on several NASDAQ regulatory boards and is a member of the advisory committee for Cramer, Collaborative Consulting and Fluent.

Eugene W. Zeltmann serves as chair of the board’s corporate governance and strategic planning committee. In his role, Zeltmann oversaw the implementation of MISO’s compliance model framework, as well as the successful execution of MISO’s project for documenting compliance activities for NERC standards and MISO’s tariff.

Zeltmann previously served as the president and CEO of the New York Power Authority (NYPA), and was appointed by New York Gov. George E. Pataki to serve as a commissioner of the New York Public Service Commission.
