Daniel Eichhorn, the president and chief operating officer (COO) of PSEG-Long Island, announced on Monday that he will retire in 2022.
Eichhorn served as the energy company’s president and COO beginning in late 2017. PSEG-LI has now begun the search for his successor, and Eichhorn will continue in the role until a new president is named to “ensure a smooth transition and a continued utmost commitment to customer service on Long Island,” PSEG-LI officials said.
“As I announce my intent to retire in the coming months, I must reflect on the devotion of PSEG Long Island’s 2,500 employees, their achievements, and the strategic improvements we have made since 2014,” Eichhorn said. “Over the past eight years, we have created a legacy of performance for customers across Long Island and the Rockaways, and I am proud of what we have accomplished together.
“I am confident that, as the company transitions to its next chapter, we are well-positioned for new leadership to build on these accomplishments – putting customers at the heart of everything we do, while further improving system reliability, enhancing customer service and supporting the state’s clean energy goals, and being an engaged and responsive community partner,” he added.
Before he became president, Eichhorn served as PSEG-LI’s vice president for customer service and as PSE&G’s director of customer contact and technology.
“During his 32 years of dedicated service, Dan has focused on significant operational improvements and an unwavering commitment to our customers and employees on Long Island and in New Jersey,” PSEG COO Ralph LaRossa said. “Dan’s leadership has helped place the PSEG Long Island workforce in a position to move into its next chapter with the right tools, team and dedication to serving every customer. We thank Dan for his considerable contributions across both Long Island and New Jersey over more than three decades of service.”
