Xcel Energy Colorado President Alice Jackson talks leadership and being prepared

Alice Jackson, Xcel Energy’s top executive in Colorado, was named the winner of Denver Business Journal’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, as part of the sixth annual Top Women in Energy program. Jackson joined Xcel’s (NYSE: XEL) division in Texas in 2011 and two years later moved to its Colorado business, the largest power utility in the state. In December, Xcel made national headlines by committing to go further, setting an ambitious goal to eliminate 100% of its carbon emissions by 2050.
