“Throughout Tom’s tenure at EEI, he has exemplified visionary leadership and has achieved countless public policy and operational milestones for the utility industry,” said Anterix Executive Chairman Morgan O’Brien. “That Tom chose to join Anterix’s Board after leaving the helm of EEI is a testament to the power of Anterix’s mission to enable the evolution of the grid and transform the communications capabilities of the utility sector.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Tom to our Board and to have him join the industry-wide movement driving utility private broadband, in support of a secure and resilient clean energy future,” added Anterix President & CEO Rob Schwartz. “Tom’s perspective and his legendary track record as an energy statesman and a consensus-builder among energy industry leaders and on Capitol Hill will be strategically valuable to our partners and to Anterix.”

“I am extremely excited to join Anterix as Vice Chairman. For all the challenges and opportunities we are facing as a sector—wildfires, decarbonization, distributed energy, cybersecurity and much more—we need a collective industry communications platform solution,” said Kuhn. “The Anterix team and their commitment to the utility sector gives us the path toward that collective solution. With our first six customers in 15 states, a growing pipeline of utilities pursuing private wireless broadband, and our 100+ vendor community, the benefits that we can realize together across the sector through scale, scope, and mutual assistance will be transformational.”

Before joining EEI, Kuhn was president of the American Nuclear Energy Council, and headed the energy section of the investment banking firm, Alex Brown and Sons. Prior to that, he was White House Liaison Officer to the Secretary of the Navy.
