Guilderland, NY, Jan. 27, 2004 — William J. Museler, President and CEO of the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO), announced that Sandra Sanford has been promoted to the position of vice president of human resources by the NYISO Board of Directors.

Sanford joins a senior team that includes six other vice presidents and the NYISO’s general counsel.

Sanford also serves as the Assistant Compliance Officer and manages the recruitment and retention of qualified candidates for all levels of the NYISO. Sanford joined the NYISO in July 1999 as the Manager of Human Resources, and was promoted to Director in December of that year.

From 1990 to 1995 Sanford worked for the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), where she served as Executive Recruiter, Manager of Compensation and Recruiting, and Manager of Employee Work Life. From 1982 to 1990, Sanford worked at General Public Utilities Nuclear (GPUN) in Parsippany, New Jersey.
