ECMC Foundation
Mr. Taylor has been the president of ECMC Foundation, a nonprofit corporation dedicated to improving educational outcomes for students from underserved backgrounds, since 2014. From 2009 to 2014, he served as executive vice president and chief financial officer for the University of California system, where he oversaw all aspects of financial management at the ten campuses and the five academic medical centers. Prior to that, most of Mr. Taylor’s professional career was in investment banking, with nearly 16 years in municipal finance banking for Lehman Brothers and Barclays Capital.

Mr. Taylor provides finance and public policy experience, which is particularly relevant to the Company’s infrastructure investment strategy and highly regulated business. He also brings capital markets experience from his investment banking career. At the University of California, Mr. Taylor had direct responsibility for risk management, accounting and financial reporting, which is valuable as a financial expert and Chair of our Audit and Finance Committee. He also brings safety experience from his years as a senior executive of the University of California, which launched the “Be Smart About Safety” campaign across all campuses during his tenure, and in his oversight role as a member of the Board of Trustees of the California State University. As a California resident with extensive professional experience in the state, Mr. Taylor also understands the perspective of utility customers impacted by California’s wildfires and regulatory environment. Mr. Taylor’s leadership qualities, capital markets experience, public policy insights and understanding of the Company’s strategy, business and regulatory landscape make him well suited to serve as the Company’s independent Chair of the Board.
