NERC General Counsel Announces Plans to Retire in August; Replacement Search Begins

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Charles (Charlie) Berardesco, senior vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary, announced plans to step down from his duties on August 31.

Berardesco joined NERC in July 2012, where he led Electric Reliability Organization efforts, including serving as interim chief executive officer during NERC's CEO transition and elevating and enhancing NERC's legal, enforcement and corporate governance functions.

'Charlie has done an outstanding job during his tenure at NERC,' said Roy Thilly, NERC Board of Trustees chair. 'He was instrumental in leading NERC as interim CEO during our time of transition. Charlie's expertise will be missed as he moves on to this next phase. We wish him the very best.'
