Bill Drummond will become the new Bonneville Power Administration Administrator next month.

Drummond is currently the BPA’s deputy administrator, which includes strategic leadership, along with overseeing compliance and risk management. A graduate of the University of Montana, he was manager of the Western Montana Electric Generating and Transmission Cooperative, based in Missoula, for 17 years. He also has been head of the Public Power Council from 1988 to 1994. He has 30 years experience in the energy industry.

He will take over the administrator role from Steve Wright, who announced his retirement last year.

Montana Senator Max Baucus likes the news. Baucus said in a press release, “Montana jobs and an affordable energy supply are linked to the Bonneville Power Administration’s work in the region. Bill’s understanding of Montana’s unique energy needs will be a boost to BPA’s ability to better serve Montana’s rural electric cooperatives, small businesses and customers, and the growing energy industry in Montana.”

The Bonneville Power Administration has existed since 1937, delivering, marketing and selling power from Bonneville Dam on the Columbia River.
