"The SGIP's efforts have dramatically increased the pace of Smart Grid standards development worldwide, facilitating and promoting an interoperability approach promising benefits throughout the Smart Grid value chain. I look forward to working closely with our Search Committee and the SGIP Board of Directors to ensure that we hire a world-class leader, one who will provide requisite management and direction for years to come." The SGIP Executive Director (ED) will be responsible for all aspects of the organization's operation and execution, including strategy, outreach, recruitment, and program management & delivery.

The SGIP is a Delaware-registered 501(c)3 tax-exempt, not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting a framework accelerating standards harmonization and advancing interoperability of Smart Grid devices and systems.
