John Paul Cowan, Senior Vice President of Operations, Fossil Generation, Announces Retirement; Brian Clark Promoted to Senior Vice President, Fossil Operations
NEWARK, N.J. – June 24, 2019 – PSEG has announced that John Paul Cowan, senior vice president of operations, Fossil Generation, PSEG Power, will retire on Sept. 13, 2019. Effective July 1, 2019, Brian Clark, currently vice president, construction, PSEG Power, will be promoted to the role of senior vice president, Fossil Operations, PSEG Power.
Cowan began his career with PSEG in 2009 as director, Fossil Programs and Efficiency, and has held various roles with increasing responsibilities. He will leave a great legacy of service at PSEG and has been integral in many of Fossil’s initiatives, including the implementation of its Operational Excellence Model, which helps employees improve process compliance and behaviors to prevent incidents.
Clark brings a wealth of experience to his new role, having held a variety of leadership positions at both PSEG Power and PSEG Services during the past 20 years, including vice president, Procurement; senior director, SERVCO and Fossil; director, Finance; and plant manager at both Sewaren and Bergen generating stations. Most recently, Clark led the successful construction and commissioning of the Bridgeport Harbor 5 generating station, a 485-megawatt combined-cycle plant that delivers one of the lowest carbon footprints per megawatt of energy produced among all of PSEG’s fossil units.
With this move, two organizations, Fossil Construction and Fossil Operations, will consolidate into one organization. From July through September, there will be a transition period to support the seamless succession of leadership and operational integration. These organizational changes will also streamline the company to better compete in a rapidly evolving energy marketplace.
