from room to room. He also managed the media brilliantly, satisfying the need for public disclosure while preserving external candidate confidentiality.
Keith possesses a rare combination of passion, vision and high EQ. He has the ability to understand differing stakeholder perspectives and reach consensus through open and honest dialogue. Keith is politically savvy without being political. Throughout the succession exercise, Keith had the best interests of SRP at heart. He never allowed anyone to lose sight of the objective.
In summary, a Board of Director’s most important responsibility is to ensure a successful CEO transition. I believe that the succession exercise at SRP would not have been as efficient or effective as it was had it not been for Keith’s leadership. He has an in-depth understanding of SRP’s mission and governance structure, and has its best interests at heart. A “doer”, Keith has been a valuable member of SRP’s Board for several years and shows no sign of slowing down in this capacity. SRP is lucky to have him as a Director.
