Phil Bussey, a pillar in Washington's energy community, is retiring from Puget Sound Energy January 5.
Bussey, 61, had been the company’s senior vice president of corporate affairs from 2003 to 2009. He left Puget Sound Energy to become president and chief executive of the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce until 2012, when he returned to PSE.
“Phil’s commitment to our employees and the people we serve has made a tremendous impact on PSE and will be missed,” PSE CEO Kimberly Harris said in a statement. “Phil has brought an ability to see the big picture while never losing sight of the needs of the individual.”
