Sheikh comes to PSEG after 18 years at Entergy Corp., where he most recently was vice president and chief information officer. In his new role, he will be responsible for leading, directing, planning and managing all information technology and digital needs in all areas of PSEG, including all ongoing business transformation strategies, and improving the digital experience for customers and employees.
Sheikh will report to PSEG Services Corp. President Derek DiRisio and will be a member of the executive officer group.
“Technology will play a critical role in the future of PSEG, covering areas from asset and grid management, to data security, to the energy cloud, energy efficiency and customer service,” DiRisio said. “We’re lucky to have landed an individual like Zeeshan, who brings a track record of leadership, experience and innovation to the table.”
Born in Queens, N.Y., and raised in New Jersey, Sheikh is a graduate of Rutgers University.
