FERC Chairman Curt Hebert Jr. last week tapped Kevin P. Madden,
a well-known and popular official at the Commission, to be general
counsel. He succeeds Doug Smith, who left the Commission on Friday.
Madden has held a number of posts during his 21-year tenure at
FERC, most recently as deputy director of the Office of Markets,
Tariffs and Rates. Prior to that, he had been director of the
Office of Pipeline Regulation since 1988. He also served as an
attorney advisor and trial attorney in the Office of General
Counsel during his years at FERC. "I chose Mr. Madden from a large
field of potential candidates both outside and within the
Commission... His contributions will be crucial to our future
achievements, especially during this critical juncture of electric
markets," Hebert said.
