The California Independent System Operator Corp. (ISO) board of governors has appointed Roger Collanton to the position of vice president, general counsel, chief compliance officer and corporate secretary. Collanton succeeds Nancy Saracino, who, after nearly seven years of service to the ISO, resigned in early February to return to private practice.

The ISO notes that Collanton serves as chief legal officer, leading the ISO's legal, internal audit and corporate compliance functions, as well as advising the board of governors on legal, governance and corporate issues.

Collanton has over 18 years of legal experience and was most recently the ISO's deputy general counsel. Prior to joining the ISO in 2009, he was a partner at law firm Morrison & Foerser LLP in San Francisco.
