John Di Stasio, general manager and chief executive officer of the Sacramento Municipal Utility District, plans to retire next year.
Di Stasio told the SMUD Board of Directors on Thursday that he would step down after more than 30 years at the utility district. He was appointed to lead the agency in 2008.
"John has provided excellent leadership in his tenure as SMUD's chief executive and in his more than 30 years at the company," board President Bill Slaton said in a written statement.
Di Stasio joined SMUD in 1981. Before being named general manger and chief executive officer, he spent eight years as assistant general manager for energy delivery and customer service. He previously served as director of distribution services and manager of supply chain services.
"We have a strong executive management team that is focused on the needs of the customer, the community and the company's role in our region," Di Stasio said in a written statement. "SMUD's in good hands and well positioned for the future."
