As head of E3’s New York office, John Leana’s role includes building E3’s East Coast presence and developing our grid modernization practice area. He joined E3 in 2018.
Previously, John held management roles in finance, corporate strategic planning, meter-to-cash, and major change initiatives, including mergers and restructuring, at National Grid. Most recently, he served as Director, Performance and Strategy for New York, where he supported the company’s jurisdictional president on business strategy and energy policy issues. John also represented National Grid in New York’s “Reforming the Energy Vision” (REV) proceedings and led its AMI business case filings in New York and Rhode Island.
As someone who has experienced three decades’ worth of industry change firsthand—from deregulation and market development in the 1990s, to cost and performance management in the 2000s, to technology evolution and the climate imperative today—John is especially motivated to help clients navigate major industry shifts. Outside of work, John enjoys hunting, fishing, and hiking.
