The Orlando Utilities Commission appointed Britta Gross to its governing board, according to an April 3 release.
The appointee "will serve OUC well as we both share a passion for the highest measure of environmental performance," OUC General Manager and CEO Ken Ksionek said in a statement.
Gross serves General Motors as its director of advanced vehicle commercialization policy. She also serves on the board of the Electric Drive Transportation Association. OUC said Gross' expertise will help "pave the way" for electric vehicle readiness in central Florida.
