Electrical Generating Systems Assoc. names Mir M. Mustafa as its first Chief Executive Officer.
The Electrical Generating Systems Association (EGSA) has named Mir M. Mustafa, JD, CAE, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the on-site power generation organization.
Mustafa becomes the first CEO of the association, which is based in Boca Raton, Fla. Previously, the day-today management and staff activities of EGSA had been overseen by an association management company. EGSA engaged Kittleman & Associate to conduct a search for its new CEO.
Mustafa is expected to position EGSA for growth by enhancing membership value through new educational and networking opportunities, expanding and diversifying its revenue streams, and refreshing the organization’s vision and mission so that it remains on the cutting edge of larger changes taking place within the power generation sector.
“Mir’s background, leadership skills, and relevant experience coupled with his passion to serve and grow EGSA clearly make him the best choice for our first-ever CEO,” said Kurt Summers, EGSA Board president, and president and CEO of Austin Generator Service. “This is a watershed event for EGSA, and I couldn’t be more excited about our selection.”
“EGSA members provide the essential products and services that secure and strengthen our nation’s critical infrastructure through distributed on-site power generation,” said Mustafa. “I’m absolutely thrilled at the opportunity to serve our members and lead such a dynamic and important organization.”
Previously, Mustafa was the vice president and general counsel for BuildingAction, a Washington, D.C., based national coalition advocating for building energy efficiency and sustainability infrastructure legislation; the Executive Director – Energy & Infrastructure for e-On Batteries, an energy storage company deploying Lithium-Iron-Phosphate (LFP) batteries and Battery Management Systems (BMS); the executive director – Business Development for the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), whose members construct half of all electrical and energy infrastructure projects in the U.S.; and co-founder and president of an advisory firm that helped public and private sector clients deploy onsite and behind-the-meter energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions in the built environment.
Mustafa assumed his responsibilities as CEO on April 5.
