Amy Andrews, formerly the commission’s chief financial officer, has been appointed to policy director, effective today. In this role, Andrews will lead the commission’s statewide policy strategy and development for regulated industries, including investor-owned utilities and private transportation companies. 

“Amy is stepping up at a time of significant change in energy and other regulated industries,” said UTC Chairman Dave Danner. “She brings sharp insight and a keen understanding of these issues, and her background in policy, finance and management will be a terrific asset as we navigate the changes ahead.” 

Andrews joined the agency in 2012. Prior to this appointment and her role as CFO, Andrews served as a senior policy advisor to the commission and as a financial analyst. Her experience spans myriad issues including utility hedging plans, regulatory reform, utility reliability, cybersecurity and technology, and regulatory accounting and taxation. 

Andrews holds a bachelor’s degree from Ottawa University and an MBA from Grand Canyon University. 

The UTC regulates the rates and services of investor-owned electric utilities, telecommunications, natural gas, and water companies, garbage-collection haulers, household-goods movers, charter-bus companies, commercial ferries, pipeline companies, and a low-level radioactive waste repository. The commission does not regulate broadband or Internet services, including those provided by regulated telecommunications companies.
