Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti Tuesday nominated Nicole Neeman Brady, a longtime utility employee and board member of environmental stewardship organizations, to the Department of Water and Power Commission.
“Nicole’s breadth of experience in environmental policy and track record as a creative problem-solver will make her a powerful leader at LADWP,” Garcetti said. “I have no doubt that her vision and expertise will help us strengthen a utility that’s front and center in building a greener, more sustainable Los Angeles.”
The City Council must confirm the nomination.
According to Garcetti’s office, Brady has more than 11 years of experience in energy, water and agriculture management, and she currently serves as the chief operating officer and principal of the Renewable Resources Group, where she directs investments and develops opportunities.
Brady is also a member of the Colorado River Board of California and sits on the board of directors of the Library Foundation of Los Angeles.
“I am excited and humbled by the opportunity to represent the city and LADWP’s customers in providing oversight of our utility, and I’m grateful for Mayor Garcetti’s trust and support,” Brady said. “I’m eager to begin and look forward to being a part of shaping our great city’s water and power future.”
Prior to joining the Renewable Resources Group, Brady was president and founder of Edison Water Resources, a subsidiary of Edison International, where she developed water treatment and recycling strategies. Brady also served in several leadership roles at Southern California Edison, including as the director of energy procurement.
