Rob leads various strategy, planning, risk management, asset analytics and regulatory efforts for Transmission & Distribution (T&D). He has led the company — not just T&D — through some of the most significant efforts over the past few years. These include: major aspects of the 2018 General Rate Case; leading the strategy and technical development of major components of the Grid Safety & Resiliency Program, Risk Assessment Mitigation Phase and Wildfire Mitigation Plan; developing the analytical backbone for SCE’s wildfire analysis efforts; and advancing T&D’s risk-informed planning process. Rob approaches his work and his relationships with colleagues and leaders with grace, humility and an unrelenting dedication to the cause.
Few people possess Rob’s depth of technical expertise, his ability to think critically and strategically, his curiosity and innovation in solving complex problems and his grace in communicating complex matters very simply. His ability to bring these skillsets together has made Rob an invaluable “go-to” expert for some of the most critical initiatives facing the company, as well as the de facto expert on some of the most impactful matters before the CPUC. A common theme with Rob is that he will always set high expectations, deliver on his commitments and get the results that are needed. Rob has been given a tremendous amount of responsibility to deliver results. When stakeholders would find out Rob was being brought in to support their efforts, there would be an overwhelming sense of calm and confidence that the work would get done with excellence.
Rob’s thought leadership and his unwavering desire to do the right thing, the right way, every time, elevated the performance and motivated the spirits of those around him. There are countless examples of how Rob has advanced the Edison values and guiding behaviors. He does this every day. What impresses most about Rob is how he seemingly without effort or intention personifies all our values at an exemplary level.
