“BPU is pleased to have one of the region’s most influential and accomplished young business and community leaders on staff,” said Bill Johnson, BPU General Manager. “On behalf of our Board of Directors, the management team, and our employees we want to congratulate Maurice and his family on this much deserved recognition. It acknowledges not only his expertise within the utility industry, but his efforts in giving back to the community through volunteerism, serving as a role model to young persons, and helping educate persons on the issue of bias and inclusion through his work in the legal community.”

At BPU Maurice is responsible for providing leadership over the functional areas of Environmental Services, NERC Compliance and Risk Management, and monitoring and interpreting regulatory requirements, while working to protect the utility’s assets and integrity.
