Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Chairman Neil Chatterjee today named Jette Gebhart as director of the Commission’s Office of Energy Market Regulation (OEMR).
Gebhart is deputy director of OEMR now, and will replace OEMR Director Anna Cochrane, who is retiring at the end of this month.
“I am pleased that Jette has accepted the position as director of the Office of Energy Market Regulation,” Chairman Chatterjee said. “She has deep knowledge and experience, and I value her insight, keen analysis and sound advice on the important matters that are before us at the Commission.”
Prior to being named OEMR’s deputy, Gebhart served as the acting deputy director and as the senior legal advisor in the office beginning in April 2015. She was the agency’s co-chief of staff in 2014-2015 and a legal and policy advisor to Commissioner Cheryl LaFleur in 2013-2014. She joined FERC in 2011 as an attorney in the Office of Enforcement, previously practiced energy law in Washington, D.C., and was a legislative assistant in the U.S. House of Representatives. Gebhart is a graduate of Wellesley College, summa cum laude, and the Georgetown University Law Center, cum laude.
