New Jersey Resources makes two executive appointments

New Jersey Resources on Thursday announced two new executive promotions.

The Wall-based energy services company said its board of directors named Amy Cradic to senior vice president and chief operating officer of non-utility business, strategy and external affairs; and Dave Johnson to vice president of corporate business development, both effective immediately.

The pair will continue to report directly to CEO and President Steve Westhoven.

“Both Amy Cradic and Dave Johnson are respected leaders throughout our company, industry and state,” Westhoven said. “I am confident they will play key roles advancing our strategy focused on infrastructure, innovation and sustainability as we grow our business, meet the needs of our customers and deliver value for our shareowners.”

In her new role, Cradic will be tasked with providing leadership and management to NJR’s non-utility businesses, including NJR Clean Energy Ventures, NJR Energy Services and NJR Midstream. She will also continue to oversee NJR’s corporate strategy, government affairs, communication and sustainability. Cradic joined NJR in 2018 as a vice president of government affairs. Before that, she was the chief of staff in the office of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. She also served in state government for nearly 25 years.

Johnson will be responsible for expanding the company’s growth opportunities by identifying, developing and launching new business models and partnerships within targeted markets. He will also oversee all business development in finance and operations. Johnson joined NJR Energy Services in 2002 and was named a vice president in 2017. Prior to that, he was the manager of Northeast assets at Amerada Hess Corp.
