New Jersey Resources said Thursday its board of directors named Amy Cradic as senior vice president and chief operating officer of non-utility businesses, strategy and external affairs and Dave Johnson as vice president of corporate business development.
The promotions are effective immediately. Cradic and Johnson will continue to report to President and Chief Executive Officer Steve Westhoven.
“Both Amy Cradic and Dave Johnson are respected leaders throughout our company, industry and state,” said Westhoven. “I am confident they will play key roles advancing our strategy focused on infrastructure, innovation and sustainability as we grow our business, meet the needs of our customers and deliver value for our shareowners.”
As COO, Cradic, who joined NJR as vice president of government affairs and policy in 2018, will be responsible for providing leadership, management and vision to NJR’s non-utility businesses, including NJR Clean Energy Ventures, NJR Energy Services and NJR Midstream.
She will ensure these businesses have the operational controls, administrative and reporting procedures, and teams in place to effectively grow the company, and to capitalize on opportunities afforded by New Jersey’s Energy Master Plan. She will also continue to oversee NJR’s corporate strategy, government affairs, communications and sustainability functions.
In his role as vice president of corporate business development, Johnson will lead NJR’s efforts to identify, develop and launch new business models and strategic partnerships within target markets to expand growth opportunities. He will oversee all business development supporting NJR’s long-term financial and operational goals.
Johnson joined NJR Energy Services in 2002 and was named vice president in 2017. He was responsible for leading the development of NJR’s wholesale marketing and deal origination business and played a key role in successfully building NJR’s Midstream business.
