WASHINGTON, D.C. – Glen Kedzie, a leader in U.S. energy and environment regulation and policy, joins the board of directors of Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA), the leading voice for sensible energy and environmental policies for families and businesses, the organization’s president, David Holt, announced today.
Kedzie has served as vice president and energy and environmental counsel for the American Trucking Associations (ATA) for over 19 years.
