AUGUSTA – Governor Paul R. LePage announced today the nomination of Randall D. Davis to serve as commissioner on the Public Utilities Commission (PUC).

“I am pleased to nominate Randy to serve on the PUC,” said Governor LePage. “His expertise in energy management for a major manufacturing facility in one of Maine’s most vital industries will bring an important perspective to the discussion. The PUC must always keep the best interests of Maine’s rate payers and taxpayers top of mind.”

Davis is currently the area operations manager for energy at Sappi’s Somerset Mill in Skowhegan, where he has worked since starting with the company in 1978. During his career he has been promoted numerous times to management positions overseeing various aspects of the manufacturing process.

Prior to his tenure at Sappi, Davis began his career as a systems engineer for Exxon Chemical in July 1976, working in New Jersey, Louisiana, Texas and England until his decision to return to Maine.

Davis holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Maine.
