Marking 100 years, NorthWestern has new CEO, makes plans for future power supply
March 28, 2023 /
When Brian Bird joined NorthWestern Corp. nearly 20 years ago, it was going through Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
“I thought I would help get them out of bankruptcy and go back to either Minneapolis or Chicago where I worked previously,” said Bird, who relocated to become the company’s chief financial officer.
Instead, he’s now NorthWestern’s CEO, a role he took on at the beginning of the year following the retirement of Bob Rowe.
In between is a company “that did a masterful job of configuring,” said Dana Dykhouse, CEO of First Premier Bank, who has served on the NorthWestern board of directors since 2009.
