Mary Powell has served as President and Chief Executive Officer for Green Mountain Power Corporation since 2008, following seven years as Chief Operating Officer. Mary initiated and implemented a strategic and comprehensive restructuring of the company that dramatically transformed Green Mountain Power and has been the backbone of a cultural transformation and service quality improvement.

As a result, the company has built Vermont’s largest wind farm, is building New England’s Solar Capital in Rutland Vermont and has installed smart grid technology across the entire utility infrastructure.
