Indianapolis Power & Light Co. has named Rafael Sanchez president and chief executive officer. Sanchez joined IPL in February as senior vice president of strategic planning.
AES United States President Ken Zagzebski says Sanchez is a "trusted leader who is uniquely qualified" for the position. Sanchez came to IPL after serving as vice president of business development and legal affairs for Indianapolis-based Fineline Printing Group.
"I’m deeply committed to this community and it is an honor to lead a company with the same values, passion and focus on making Indianapolis a better place to live," said Sanchez. "This is a transformative time for our industry, and I am up for the challenge of maintaining the value, service and reliability our customers depend upon."
Sanchez also serves as secretary for the Indy Chamber and served on the IPL advisory board for the past five years.
