In the latest issue of National Journal, reporter Margaret Kriz profiled NEI's President and CEO, Skip Bowman. The article is only available to paid subscribers, but here's a small excerpt:
Industry officials are counting on Bowman to build broad bipartisan support for nuclear power. "Fundamental to me in the process [of hiring a new NEI chief] was to get somebody who would be genuinely bipartisan, who understands that the future of nuclear technology is dependent upon it being supported by both parties," said John Rowe, president and CEO of Exelon, a Chicago-based utility that owns more nuclear power plants than any other firm in the nation. "Skip ran a large nuclear fleet with more than 100 floating reactors. He was in business where . . . long-term stability of your plants needed bipartisan support."
