Diversity in Corporate Success with Anne Pramaggiore, President & COO, ComEd


How does diversity become an important component of corporate success

Trained as a lawyer, Pramaggiore joined ComEd’s legal team in 1998, recognizing the opportunity to make an impact in what was essentially the last regulated industry to undergo restructuring. She then received a promotion into ComEd’s regulatory area, where she ultimately became responsible for directing the company’s successful transition into an open and competitive electricity market. In 2007, after months of debate and negotiation, Pramaggiore helped strike an accord that provided Illinois residents with $1 billion in rate relief, while preserving the state’s competitive electricity market and protecting ComEd from potential bankruptcy.
Prior to her current position, Pramaggiore served as executive vice president of Customer Operations, Regulatory and External Affairs. In that role, Pramaggiore oversaw distribution and transmission rate making, customer operations and state regulatory affairs and strategy for ComEd. Additional responsibilities included the administration of environmental stewardship activities designed to promote customer satisfaction.

Pramaggiore was promoted to her current position in May 2009. She is the first female to hold the post of president and the highest-ranking woman at the electric utility.

Pramaggiore serves as a board member of the Lookingglass Theatre, the Financial Research Institute and the Lincoln Park Zoo, and is a member of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Committee on Conservation and the Committee on Museum Education. She also is a member of The Chicago Network, an organization of diverse female professionals in Chicagoland dedicated to the advancement of women.
