Vice President, Business Planning
JP Brummond is Vice President of Business Planning at Alliant Energy Corporation (NASDAQ: LNT). He joined the company in 2002, with more than 10 years of experience working as a chemical engineer in coal and nuclear plants.
Throughout his career, JP has successfully incorporated his engineering and utility industry experience, making an impact as a consultant and partner in a startup business.
JP joined Alliant Energy as a financial engineer and helped write software that would be used for many years to interact with the market. It was a critical tool, created before there were vendors or standard applications available. During his tenure with the company, JP has held a variety of positions with increasing levels of responsibility, including leadership roles in Generation, Bulk Power Trading, Market Operations and Customer Operations. Before being named to his current position, JP was the Strategy Director and had an integral role in helping to define the strategy the company still follows today.
In 2019, JP was named Vice President of Business Planning. In this role, he is heavily involved in transitions throughout the company, including environmental services, energy market operations, resource development, electrification, engineering solutions and transmission planning. He also spearheads corporate strategy development, overseeing several critical components, such as the grid pilot projects and fiber network build-outs. His team plans for ways to use energy resources differently, including the shift from wind to solar, sustainability efforts and helping the company adapt to changes taking place throughout the industry.
For nearly a decade, JP has been involved with the company’s Evolving Professionals Connection Employee Resource Group and serves as an Executive Sponsor. He takes pride in the fact that the group – which focuses on engaging and retaining employees – provides members an opportunity to form relationships across the organization with people they might not otherwise meet in their day-to-day work.
Outside of work, JP volunteers with the UW-Madison Erdman Center for Operations and Technology Management and is a member of the Advisory Board. He is also on the Board of Directors for the Midwest Reliability Organization.
JP holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and an MBA from the University of Chicago.
