This paper reports the initial findings of Water Utility Executive Leadership for the 21st Century, the first comprehensive study of American utility CEOs. Sponsored by the Water Research Foundation and Colgate University, this study applies the state-of-the-art organizational research methods to conduct an interview-based survey of utility CEOs. Data from this survey are used to develop a descriptive summary of CEOs' demographics, education, professional backgrounds, and behaviors. Together, these data offer a snapshot of American utilities' executive leadership, revealing who utility CEOs are. The study also offers a baseline for comparison in future research. This research will have important, industry-wide implications for the recruitment and development of utility leaders today and in the future. This paper gives UMC attendees the first look at the preliminary results of this study, which will be fully documented in a comprehensive report late in 2012.
