PREPA CEO, Walter Higgins, Confirms for CREF 2018

We are pleased to announce that Walter Higgins, the CEO of PREPA, Puerto Rico’s electric utility, has confirmed a keynote role at CREF 2018. Mr. Higgins took the helm of the utility earlier this year against the backdrop of a grid decimated by Hurricane Maria. Already beleaguered by bondholders, Mr. Higgins oversees a utility which must make critical decisions around the future of the grid, while also navigating the prospect of privatization. Mr. Higgins’ participation at CREF is one component of what will be significant coverage of the Puerto Rican rebuild at CREF 2018.
