BATON ROUGE, La., – Allied Power Management LLC (“Allied”), a leading provider of maintenance and specialty services to the power generation industry, announced executive changes as CEO Ron McCall retires from his position to remain with the company as Chairman of the Board. Dean Sack, most recently the company’s Executive Vice President (EVP), succeeds McCall as the next Allied Power CEO.
As a founder of Allied, McCall’s career in the industrial construction and maintenance sectors spans over 54 years. His extensive experience and knowledge in all aspects of projects, both domestic and international, spearheaded the company’s growth and established its reputation as a leading diversified fossil and nuclear power plant provider.
“Every challenge and triumph has driven the growth of Allied Power, and it’s been an honor to lead a team of industry professionals for the last six years,” said McCall. “I look forward to supporting Allied’s success as Chairman of the Board and experiencing the company’s future growth under Dean’s leadership.”
With over 40 years of experience supplying and managing plant services staff, Sack upholds a strong track record on safety program effectiveness. Sack’s implementation of safety values and practices helped distinguish Allied’s operations from other service providers, serving a pivotal role in supporting the company’s growth as one of the U.S.’s largest power services maintenance providers.
“Ron has been a pillar at Allied Power for as long as I can remember and I am eager to continue his legacy as CEO,” said Sack.
Joining the change in CEO, Allied announced James Piazza as EVP of Nuclear Services and David Hansen as EVP of Fossil Services.
Piazza brings over 30 years of experience in maintenance, work control, construction and capital projects and is knowledgeable in all aspects of nuclear maintenance, labor relations and construction.
Hansen’s extensive industry experience and previous leadership roles qualify him as the ideal candidate for the EVP of Fossil Services position. His past responsibilities included overseeing all facets of fossil generation operations, maintenance and engineering at nine facilities.
