Landgren to retire from American Transmission Co.

PEWAUKEE, Wis. – Dale A. Landgren, vice president and chief strategic officer at American Transmission Co., has announced his retirement, effective Dec. 31, 2010.

As chief strategic officer, Landgren’s responsibilities include planning, federal and regional relations and policy, customer relations and interconnection services. Those functions now will report to other members of the executive team, with Landgren helping make the transition through the remainder of the year.

“As one of the company’s founding executives, Dale played an important role in the development and growth of ATC,” said John Procario, president and chief executive officer. “He guided our strategic planning process, identifying projects and policies that built out our legacy networks into a more robust system, helping the company grow from $550 million in assets to $2.75 billion today.”

Well-respected in the electric transmission industry, Landgren was a significant player in the establishment of the Midwest Independent System Operator. He served on the Management Council of the Midwest ISO from 1996 to 1998 and chaired the Transmission Owners Group from 2000-2002. Landgren has continued to play an important role in the North American Electric Reliability Corp., currently serving as chair of the Midwest Reliability Organization Board and serving on the NERC Member Representative Committee.

Prior to helping establish ATC in 2000, Landgren had a 27-year career at Wisconsin Electric Power Co. (now We Energies), where he was named an officer in 1997.

Landgren earned a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering at Marquette University and a master’s degree in economics from the University of Chicago.
