New AMP GM Named
City Manager Jill Keimach announced yesterday the appointment of Nicolas Procos as general manager of Alameda Municipal Power (AMP). He replaces Glenn Steiger, who retired in August. Procos will step into his new job on Feb. 22. He has more than 17 years of experience with electric, gas, water, wastewater and fiber optic utilities.
Procos most recently worked as manager of utilities administration for the Port of Oakland. He was responsible for the port’s utility functions, including power procurement, renewable strategy, rate making, regulatory compliance, legislative advocacy, energy efficiency, distributed generation and strategic planning. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from McGill University in Montreal, Canada.
“We are delighted that Nico has accepted the challenge to lead AMP,” said Keimach. “We conducted an extensive national search and ended up finding an experienced power utility professional with an impressive career right here in the East Bay.”
The city manager is responsible for hiring AMP’s general manager. Procos will report to both the city manager and the Public Utilities Board (PUB). Assistant City Manager Liz Warmerdam has served as AMP’s interim general manager since last September.
