The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) has appointed Mark Crosswhite, chief operating officer of Southern Company, as a member of its Board of Directors.

Since joining Southern Company in 2004 as senior vice president and general counsel for Southern Company Generation, areas Crosswhite's oversees include generation, transmission, engineering and construction services, system planning, research and environmental affairs, fleet operations and trading.

Crosswhite joined Southern Company-subsidiary Alabama Power in 2006 as senior vice president and counsel, then was named executive vice president in 2008. He was elected president and chief executive officer of Gulf Power, another Southern Company subsidiary, in 2010.

"We are pleased to have a leader of Mark's industry experience and vision to join our Board of Directors," says EPRI President and Chief Executive Officer Michael W. Howard. "His belief that technology offers the best solutions to providing affordable, reliable and environmentally responsible electricity makes him well-suited to help guide our research efforts."

EPRI announced another pair of new board members -- Nicholas K. Akins of American Electric Power and Kimberly S. Green of the Tennessee Valley Authority -- in April.
