Madden Named FERC's General Counsel

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.
