    Meet TCL&P Executive Director Ekren

    TCLP Executive Director Brandie Ekren

    Traverse City Light & Power (TCL&P) has a new, innovative Executive Director, Brandie Ekren. She is an innovative and transformational leader with a passion for the industry and a desire to work collaboratively to meet TLC&P’s fiber, smart grid, and renewable energy goals.

    TCL&P Chairman Paul Heiberger was quoted in a Record-Eagle article: “I think it's great news, both for Traverse City and TCL&P to have such an exceptional candidate apply and ultimately be selected, so it’s just a great indicator of what an attractive place Traverse City is, and as a utility, that Brandie [Ekren] wants to lead us. That’s just what TCL&P needs as it works toward its renewable energy and decarbonization goals to become a more sustainable utility.”

    Ms. Ekren comes to Traverse City after her role as executive director of strategic planning and development for the Lansing Board of Water & Light.

    NMEAC’s Board is delighted to help our environmental community and Brandie Ekren get acquainted. We'll have a Q&A after her presentation to our group. Please RSVP below!
