New president named at Orange and Rockland Utilities


William G. Longhi has been named the new president and chief executive officer of Orange and Rockland Utilities Inc., which provides electric service to 300,000 customers in southeastern New York state, northern New Jersey and northeastern Pennsylvania.

Longhi, 55, previously was the senior vice president of central operations at Consolidated Edison of New York. In that position, his responsibilities included the planning, design, operation and maintenance of electric generation, transmission and substations systems. After joining Consolidated Edison in 1976, Longhi has held a variety of positions. Those included vice president of operations at Orange and Rockland in 2000 and 2001.

Longhi succeeds John D. McMahon who served as Orange and Rockland’s president and CEO for six years. McMahon returns to Consolidated Edison as executive vice president. The changes are effective Sunday. Consolidated Edison is the parent company of Orange and Rockland Utilities.

Longhi lives in Katonah with wife, Janice, and three children — Billy, Jacqueline and Angela.
