Dusky Terry has been named president of ITC Midwest and vice president of ITC Holdings Corp.
ITC, based in Novi, Mich., is a subsidiary of Fortis Inc. ITC owns and operates high-voltage transmission infrastructure throughout the Midwest.
Terry succeeds and reports to Krista Tanner, who was promoted to senior vice president and chief business unit officer for ITC Holdings Corp. in February.
A lifelong Iowan, Terry spent the first half of his career in the public policy arena before joining Central Iowa Power Cooperative (CIPCO), an electric generation and transmission cooperative, in 2008. He served as vice president of planning and growth strategies for CIPCO starting in 2013, where he led a team responsible for business development, wholesale ratemaking and marketing/energy efficiency programs. Most recently, his responsibilities expanded to include long-term resource planning, playing a key role in the deployment of CIPCO’s recent utility-scale solar projects. Terry also previously served as an advisor to former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack.
“Dusky has extensive industry experience in the Midwest region, relationships with our existing customers, and strong policy and legislative experience,” says Tanner. “His background in the utility industry will be a tremendous asset to ITC Midwest as we continue to plan, build and operate significant projects to improve electric transmission infrastructure across our footprint.”
“ITC has a well-deserved reputation for operational excellence and enhanced electric transmission reliability,” says Terry. “Modernizing the power grid is key to meeting consumer demands for cleaner, low-cost, renewable energy sources, notably wind and solar. The company is well-positioned for continued success to support economic growth and the quality of life in our communities. I’m grateful for this professional opportunity and look forward to leading the ITC Midwest team.”
Terry began his new responsibilities today. He is based at ITC Midwest’s regional office in Des Moines, Iowa.
