NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Macquarie Infrastructure Company (MIC) announced that it has appointed Alicia Moy to the position of President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of its HAWAIʽIGAS business.
Ms. Moy succeeds Jeffrey M. Kissel, who has served as President and CEO of the business since 2007. Mr. Kissel has decided upon early retirement in order to focus more time on his work on economic initiatives to lower the cost of doing business in Hawaii.
“I’m thrilled and honored to become part of the HAWAIʽIGAS team,” said Ms. Moy. “HAWAIʽIGAS is a critical part of Hawaii’s clean energy future and I’m proud to join this group of dedicated energy professionals that have provided safe and reliable gas service to the people of Hawaii for more than 100 years.”
Ms. Moy worked on the acquisition of HAWAIʽIGAS on behalf of Macquarie Infrastructure Company (MIC), in 2005 and 2006. Since then, she has overseen MIC’s investment in HAWAIʽIGAS and has been a member of the Board of Directors of HAWAIʽIGAS since 2011. Ms. Moy has led a number of initiatives on behalf of HAWAIʽIGAS, including the successful refinancing of its long-term debt in 2012.
Since joining the Macquarie Group in 2001, Ms. Moy has gained extensive leadership experience with several Macquarie-managed utility businesses in North America, including the development, funding, and execution of their strategic plans. As an energy insider, her experience has been and will continue to be an important asset to HAWAIʽIGAS. Ms. Moy began her career in the Investment Banking division of Morgan Stanley in New York.
“We’re extremely pleased to be able to place the leadership of HAWAIʽIGAS in Alicia’s hands. Having overseen our acquisition of HAWAIʽIGAS and worked with the business for the past eight years, she is the logical successor. We have complete confidence in Alicia, given her talent and deep knowledge of the business and her vision for the next phase of its growth,” said James Hooke, Chairman of the Board of HAWAIʽIGAS and CEO of MIC.
“We appreciate the contributions Jeff Kissel has made,” Mr. Hooke continued. “The company has continued to grow and prosper during his tenure.”
HAWAIʽIGAS is the owner and operator of the only regulated (“utility”) gas processing and pipeline distribution network in the Hawaiian Islands. The business is also the owner and operator of the largest unregulated (“non-utility”) propane gas distribution business on the islands.
