Mayor Eric Garcetti has nominated Marty Adams as the next general manager of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
“LADWP is at the center of a generational transition toward a more sustainable Los Angeles, and our utility needs a leader with the experience and vision to help us realize that promise,” Garcetti said Friday. “Marty has played a critical role in navigating the department through some of its toughest challenges, and I know that he is the right person to lead LADWP forward.”
Adams is currently the DWP’s chief operating officer, who has decades of experience with the utility provider.
“It will be a great honor to lead an organization that I have been dedicated to for the last 35 years,” Adams said. “I take our responsibility of ensuring the city’s future success very seriously.”
Current general manager David H. Wright announced Saturday that he will step down on Oct. 1.
“Dave’s commitment to putting our customers first, reducing our reliance on imported water and embracing clean energy made a tremendous difference at LADWP,” Garcetti said.
The LADWP Board of Commissioners and Los Angeles City Council will consider Adams’ nomination for confirmation.
