Mark Berry, an industry veteran of 27 years, is joining Affordable Gas + Electric, LLC (AGE) as Vice President of Governmental Aggregation & New Business Development.
Berry formerly served as VP of Municipal Sales and Principal of Governmental Aggregations for Constellation.
In addition to his role heading municipal aggregation at AGE, Berry will also be responsible for developing expanded new revenue opportunities and seeking strategic acquisition opportunities for the company.
Berry previously served as former Vice-President of Engineering Administration for Texas Gas Transmission. In 1998, as owner of Innovative Gas Services, Inc., Berry sold his firm to MDU Resources, Inc. At the time of the sale, Innovative Gas Services was the largest wholesaler/retailer on the Texas Gas Transmission system, AGE said. In 2000, Berry co-founded and was COO of US Power & Gas, Inc., a company that grew to over 500,000 retail accounts in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan. US Power & Gas, Inc. was sold to Shell Oil Company and Interstate Gas Supply in 2004. Berry then took on several roles with Fellon-McCord & Associates prior to joining Constellation
Jeff Haarmann, Managing Partner of AGE, commented "Mark and I will work closely together to further support and grow our aggregation business through both organic growth and strategic acquisitions where possible. We will also seek innovative revenue streams that closely align with AGE’s overall 'full-service' independent consultant/aggregator business strategy."
AGE collectively manages over 130 residential aggregation communities in Ohio and Illinois, based in the DP&L and Ameren utility areas. The Illinois aggregations are part of the Southern Illinois Aggregation Partnership, a management partnership between Select Energy Partners, Inc. and AGE. In addition to AGE’s residential aggregations, the company also manages 20 C&I aggregates for Chambers of Commerce and other Associations. In 2017, AGE was recognized as Homefield Energy’s (Dynegy) largest C&I broker in the State of Illinois.
