ATC’s new CEO is a familiar face
During their April meeting, the American Transmission Co. Board of Directors selected ATC Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Mike Rowe to serve as ATC’s next president and chief executive officer.
Rowe has been with ATC for more than eight years. He joined the company in January 2006 as vice president of Construction, and in 2012 was promoted to executive vice president and chief operating officer with responsibility for Asset Management and System Operations. In May 2014 he also assumed overall responsibility for System Planning. Under Rowe’s direction, ATC put processes in place that helped the company complete more than $2 billion in projects on time, within budget and delivering value to its customers.
Outgoing President, CEO and Chairman John Procario, who announced last year his plans to retire, will hand over the reins to Rowe on May 1. To ensure a smooth transition, Procario will serve as executive chairman until his retirement on July 31, and will continue as chair of the ATC board through the end of 2015.
Congratulations to Mike Rowe on his new role!
