Connie E. Durcsak has been appointed president and CEO of the Utilities Telecom Council (UTC).

Durcsak joined UTC from PCIA-The Wireless Infrastructure Association, where she served as senior director of member and industry services and as its DAS Forum’s executive director. She succeeded William R. Moroney, who retired June 30 after serving as UTCs president and CEO since 1998.

“Connie brings industry knowledge and experience that will be very beneficial to UTC and its members,” said Ron Beck, UTC board chairman and network engineer at Central Lincoln People’s Utility District. “She has the leadership skills and enthusiasm required to lead UTC confidently into the future.

“Connie’s current focus on wireless issues, spectrum management and frequency coordination combined with her ability to set the strategic direction of advocacy efforts have great synergies with UTC’s strategic goals moving forward. I and the rest of the UTC board of directors look forward to working with her on the issues that lie ahead.”

Prior to joining PCIA in 2002, Durcsak worked as a senior process engineer with RGS Associates and a principal consultant with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, where she helped complex organizations tackle their most difficult challenges. She has a master’s in business from Marymount University and a Bachelor of Arts and bachelor’s in education from Acadia University in Nova Scotia.

“I am excited to have the opportunity to work with UTC’s board, members and staff to continue to grow the activities of a dynamic association,” Durcsak said. “Information and communications technology is the backbone of energy and water utilities and the key to driving next-generation technologies. It is essential that UTC continues to serve as the aggressive voice of critical infrastructure communications in order to meet the challenges we face as an industry on Capitol Hill and with regulators. I’m thrilled to get started.”
