PUD may have new general manager come June
Tony Webb announced this week a succession plan to Grant PUD commissioners which outlines his transition out of the general manager role.
Webb recommended that current chief financial officer, Kevin Nordt, assume the general manager position effective this June. The succession plan fulfills a longstanding request by the board to ensure a seamless transition in anticipation of Webb’s eventual retirement from the utility, a PUD press release reported. After Nordt assumes the position of general manager, Webb will continue to serve in a senior leadership capacity.
Webb was appointed as general manager in 2013 after serving in various leadership roles within the utility since 1990.
A resolution regarding the proposed succession plan will be reviewed by commissioners at their Jan. 26 meeting before any formal action can be taken.
Nordt has over two decades of experience in the Northwest energy industry and has held various leadership roles within Grant PUD since his arrival to the utility in 2004.
