Greg Patterson serves as Executive Director of the Arizona Competitive Power Alliance (AzCPA), the Grand Canyon State’s leading advocate for independent power. An accomplished political player, media commentator and influential blogger, Patterson has a well-earned reputation as an accomplished change agent.
Beginning what Governor Jan Brewer has called an “extensive and well-rounded background in public service,” Mr. Patterson served two terms as a Member of the Arizona House of Representatives and three years as the Chief of Staff of the Arizona State Senate. Patterson directed Arizona’s Residential Utility Consumer Office before entering the private sector.
Mr. Patterson graduated with distinction from the University of Arizona Eller College of Management and earned his law degree from Arizona State University. Last year, Governor Brewer Patterson appointed him the University of Arizona Board of Regents, describing Patterson as “one of Arizona’s leaders in public policy and conservative philosophy for the last two decades.”
