Ryan Hadley is the new executive director for the Indiana Office of Energy Development.
“Ryan Hadley is committed to finding affordable and stable energy for all Hoosiers,” said Gov. Eric Holcomb, who appointed Hadley to the post. “He is driven to continuously improve our state’s energy economy by finding reliable and innovative solutions.”
Hadley most recently served as the executive director of external affairs for the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission where he oversaw the agency’s legislative, media, and stakeholder management strategies, as well as the consumer affairs division. Prior to that position, he worked as the deputy director of legislative and external affairs for the agency.
He will continue to provide legislative assistance to the IURC through the conclusion of the current general assembly session.
“I look forward to helping Indiana navigate the changing and evolving energy landscape and continue Indiana’s strong legacy of safe, reliable, and affordable energy services that are essential for Hoosiers,” Hadley said.
Hadley earned an undergraduate degree from University of Southern Indiana. Hadley began his new role Jan. 24.
The Indiana Office of Energy Development was established to shepherd energy planning and policy development.
