CHICAGO, Sept. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Justin Ladner, president of Illinois American Water, has been appointed chairman of the board of the Illinois Utilities Business Diversity Council (IUBDC). Ladner succeeds Joseph Dominguez, former president and CEO of Commonwealth Edison.

I’m honored to lead the council and I’m excited about what we can continue to accomplish together.”
