Dacri & Associates, LLC has been exclusively retained by Littleton Electric Light & Water Departments (LELWD) to conduct a confidential search for a new General Manager/CEO. 

This search will replace the current General Manager who is retiring.

This is a unique opportunity for an experienced business oriented General Manager.  The right individual will be responsible for all aspects of leading this 38 employee department, serving over 6,500 residential and commercial customers in two communities, with electrical revenues in excess of $30 million and water revenues in excess of $1 million. To qualify, you must have strong financial, operational and management skills; understanding of public utilities; and the ability to work effectively and with transparency with town government, citizen groups, customers and employees.

This is a great moment for the career-minded manager who has a passion for leading. You will be responsible for developing and presenting an annual and capital budget, recommending utility rates, providing reliable delivery of electric power and water, ensuring a diversified energy portfolio including renewable energy sources, and developing short and long-term strategic plans. Operational oversight over all aspects of the business includes union negotiations, monitoring the power supply market and executing power supply purchases. Municipal experience is a critical. A Bachelors degree is required and a Masters degree is preferred.

Utilities today face many challenges. The perfect candidate will be experienced in working with regulatory agencies; addressing environmental issues; and formulating creative solutions, while maintaining a high level of service and low rates.
