NOVI—Charles L. Marshall has been named vice president of transmission planning by ITC Holdings Corp., the Novi-based owner of power transmission lines. He succeeds Thomas W. Vitez, who retired from ITC on May 1.
At ITC, Marshall’s responsibilities have ranged from regulatory policy and stakeholder relations to project engineering and business unit planning. His experience and committee service with regional transmission organizations—the Midcontinent Independent System Operators (MISO) and the Southwest Power Pool (SPP)—offers a broad perspective of transmission needs and potential technical solutions.
“Chuck has proven to be an incredible asset to the ITC team,” said Jon Jipping, executive vice president and COO for ITC. “His background and customer-focus will be a tremendous asset to ITC as we continue to plan, build and operate significant projects to improve electric transmission infrastructure across our footprint. I’d also like to congratulate Tom on his retirement. He was part of the original team who started International Transmission Company, and we thank him for his service and wish him well during his retirement.”
Marshall earned a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from Michigan Technological University and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Michigan-Flint.
