California Water Service Group Names Pottenger to Board of Directors

California Water Service Group today announced the election of Carol M. Pottenger to the Company’s Board of Directors, effective September 27, 2017.

The first female three-star Admiral in American history to lead in a combat branch, Pottenger served for 36 years in the U.S. Navy.  One of the first women to serve at sea, she eventually commanded two ships, a logistic force of 30 ships, a Japan-based strike-group of eight ships, and the Navy’s Expeditionary Force of 40,000 sailors.  Her final assignment was with NATO, as the senior U.S. Flag Officer responsible for military transformation and sensitive military topics such as counterterrorism and cyber security.

In her current capacity as principal and owner of CMP Global LLC, Pottenger provides consulting services in business development, process improvement, corporate governance, strategic planning, and cyber and information systems.

“Carol has been a pioneer throughout her career, and she brings a wealth of expertise to the team,” said California Water Service Group Chairman Peter C. Nelson. “Her experience is unique, running the gamut from operations to technology to risk management, and she will be a great asset to our Board.”

Pottenger is a graduate of Purdue University in Lafayette, Indiana.  In 2007, she was awarded an honorary doctorate from Purdue.  She serves on various private, defense, and non-profit boards, including the U.S. Navy Memorial Foundation in Washington, D.C. and as an external board member for PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP Board of Partners and Principals.
