Gov. Eric J. Holcomb today announced that Ryan Hadley is the new executive director for the Indiana Office of Energy Development.
“Ryan Hadley is committed to finding affordable and stable energy for all Hoosiers,” Gov. Holcomb said. “He is driven to continuously improve our state’s energy economy by finding reliable and innovative solutions.”
Hadley most recently served as the executive director of external affairs for the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) where he oversaw the agency’s legislative, media, and stakeholder management strategies, as well as the Consumer Affairs Division. He will continue to provide legislative assistance to the IURC through the conclusion of the current General Assembly session. Prior to that position, he worked as the deputy director of legislative and external affairs for the agency.
“I want to thank Governor Holcomb for the opportunity to serve in this role,” Hadley said. “I look forward to helping Indiana navigate the changing and evolving energy landscape and continue Indiana’s strong legacy of safe, reliable, and affordable energy services that are essential for Hoosiers.”
Hadley earned an undergraduate degree from University of Southern Indiana. Hadley begins his tenure on Jan. 24.
In Indiana, the Office of Energy Development was established to shepherd energy planning and policy development.
