President | Xcel Energy – Colorado
Alice K. Jackson is President of Xcel Energy – Colorado, a company serving 1.4 million electric customers and 1.3 million natural gas customers. The company is a recognized industry leader in delivering affordable and reliable service, providing clean energy choices and in reducing carbon and other emissions. Since joining Xcel Energy in 2011, Jackson has held various positions of increasing responsibility. Most recently, Jackson was Vice President of Strategic Revenue Initiatives, where she built a team to generate new revenues through exploring and integrating new technologies and economic development initiatives in addition to looking at new options for Xcel Energy’s unregulated businesses. Prior to her corporate strategic role, Jackson held the lead regulatory position with Xcel Energy—Texas/New Mexico and then with Xcel Energy—Colorado.
Before her time with Xcel Energy, Jackson spent close to 10 years with Occidental Petroleum Corporation (Oxy) managing the energy needs of this large consumer across the country. Through her involvement in the federal and state electric markets, multiple rate cases, and interaction with customers large and small, Jackson developed a unique respect for utilities and their contributions to society.
Because having a full-time career, being married to her high school sweetheart and having four sons is not enough of an adventure in life, Jackson recently took on the challenge of advancing her business acumen. In 2017, Jackson completed the Program for Leadership Development at Harvard University. Before her professional experience, Jackson obtained a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a concentration in Management Information Systems from Texas A&M University.
