The City of San Antonio’s City Council today voted to confirm Dr. Willis Mackey to the CPS Energy Board of Trustees, representing the Southeast Quadrant. After an earlier, unanimous vote by the five-member Board, Dr. Mackey’s name was submitted to the City Council by Mayor Ron Nirenberg.
“We now welcome Dr. Willis Mackey to the CPS Energy Board of Trustees and are thankful to the Mayor and City Council for his confirmation,” said Board Chair John Steen. “His extensive experience in leadership, fiscal discipline, and education, along with his commitment to serve this community, are going to be very valuable to our Board, CPS Energy, and all of our customers.”
“I am humbled to join the CPS Energy Board of Trustees,” said Dr. Mackey. “CPS Energy has a long history of being a responsible, well-run company with a successful track record that has brought value to our community. I look forward to working with my fellow board members.”
Dr. Mackey will represent the Southeast Quadrant of CPS Energy’s service area with his first official meeting on April 30, 2018. Dr. Mackey, who retired after a long career in public school administration, currently provides consulting services to school districts across the state. He has his Doctorate in Education from Texas A&M University.
CPS Energy’s Board sets policy and works with the CEO and her management team to oversee business operations of the nation’s largest municipally owned electric and gas utility. CPS Energy generates more than $2.5 billion in revenues annually, manages over $11 billion in assets, employs over 3,000 employees locally, and returns over $300 million a year to the City of San Antonio’s general fund. This is all while keeping its rates affordable and remaining focused on providing reliable service.
