Tuan Tran Brings 20 Years of Utility Experience to the Job

SEATTLE — Seattle City Light hired Tuan Tran to be the utility’s director of energy delivery engineering, Superintendent Jorge Carrasco announced today.

“Delivering reliable electricity to our customers is one of the cornerstones of our operations,” Carrasco said. “I am pleased to have someone with Tuan’s extensive experience leading this essential work.”

Tran’s first day is June 1. With more than 20 years of experience in the utility industry, Tran will lead a group of 98 engineers at Seattle City Light working on major capital programs and nine support staff employees. Most recently Tran managed the Transmission and Distribution System Planning and Operations Group for Tacoma Power. He previously worked at Puget Sound Power and Light Co. as a major projects engineer. He also developed and teaches system power courses at Gonzaga University.

Tran earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Gonzaga and is licensed as a professional engineer.
