RICHLAND, Wash. – Gov. Jay Inslee recently re-appointed Dave Remington to the Energy Northwest Executive Board. The executive board sets the policies that govern the operations of the agency. His term will run through June 30, 2016.

“I am delighted and honored to have been re-appointed to the Energy Northwest Executive Board for an additional term, and thank Governor Inslee,” said Remington. “In particular, I look forward with pleasure to continuing to serve and work with executive management and other board members, all of whom have an unremitting and unwavering commitment to excellence, thereby furthering the best interests of the people of Washington.”

Remington has served on the executive board since his appointment by Gov. Gary Locke in December 2004 and was re-appointed by Gov. Christine Gregoire in 2009. Currently he is chair of the Compensation Subcommittee.

“I’m delighted to have Dave on the Energy Northwest Executive Board,” said Energy Northwest Executive Board Chair Sid Morrison. “Dave plays an instrumental role with the executive board and is superb with the compensation and financial elements we deal with, especially given his background.”

Remington is retired from Itron Inc. in Spokane, where he was senior vice president and chief financial officer; and was responsible for accounting, tax, finance, and mergers and acquisitions transactions.

He has more than 35 years of experience in corporate finance, treasury and investment banking services. He holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley; and a master’s degree in business administration from the Harvard Business School.

The executive board has 11 members: five elected from the board of directors, three appointed by the board of directors from outside Energy Northwest and three appointed by the governor of Washington.
