A Messages from Peter Gregg, IESO President and CEO

August 20, 2020

Friends and colleagues -

I want to let you know that I will be leaving the IESO in the coming months to join Nova Scotia Power as their new President and CEO.

This was not an easy decision for me. Since joining the IESO more than three years ago, I have truly appreciated the opportunity to work with so many talented professionals, at the IESO and across the sector. I am proud of our shared efforts to improve the reliability of Ontario’s electricity system and drive down costs for consumers.

However, the opportunity to join Nova Scotia Power, and the parent Emera group, in a leadership role was one I could not turn down. Nova Scotia Power is a fully integrated utility with over 1700 dedicated employees and I am excited to join and lead the transformational journey they have begun. My family and I will be moving to Halifax where our daughter will also be starting university in the Fall.

Next steps on my transition, including specific timing and the process to find my replacement are still being worked out.

I am truly looking forward to the next chapter and want to thank you for the support you have given me.

While I look forward to meeting new colleagues and friends in my new role, I sincerely hope that we all remain in touch.
