"I'm very pleased to welcome Rita Meyer to our leadership team at Rocky Mountain Power and look forward to the positive impact she will have in serving our Wyoming customers and working together with numerous stakeholders to help shape our energy future," said Richard Walje, Rocky Mountain Power president and CEO. "Rita has already provided great value as a member of our Regional Advisory Board in representing the interests of Wyoming customers and helping to guide our decisions in the state. She brings a wealth of experience and a solid understanding of Wyoming issues to her new role with the company."
Meyer is a retired officer with the Wyoming Air National Guard with diverse professional experience in small business, government and military service.

"I fully recognize the growing regulatory challenges not just for Rocky Mountain Power but for all other utility companies as well. While I respect the difficult work ahead I am also excited about a new and unique opportunity to serve the people of Wyoming."
