Vice President, Finance and Accounting, Con Edison Clean Energy Businesses
Mark Glucksman is the vice president of finance and accounting for Con Edison Clean Energy Businesses (CEB). Mark has served in this divisional CFO role since 2007. He is a member of the executive team that repositioned the business to reduce volatility and establish a contracted revenue stream across solar, wind, and battery storage. CEB has grown from concept to its current ranking as the second-largest solar energy owner and operator in North America and a leading battery storage provider with a multimillion-dollar annual revenue and a multibillion-dollar renewables asset base.
Mark’s change management approach is equal parts catalyst and coach, energizing the organization and his team to achieve full-potential results. Mark led the financial integration of four acquisitions representing complex tax and accounting requirements and over $1.6 billion in transaction value, with no audit findings and only a 10% increase in finance staffing levels. He conducted due diligence and directed the finance organization’s strategy in the divestiture of two businesses representing more than $1.5 billion in annual revenue. As the organization has grown to more than 200 legal entities, Mark has successfully implemented new systems, most recently Oracle Cloud EPBCS (budgeting and forecasting system), and his team has met 100% of monthly-close timelines (four days) for 20 years.
Mark has been with the Con Edison family of businesses since 1997. He was a senior commodity specialist, a director of finance, and the controller for Con Edison Solutions. He was then selected to lead the financial consolidation of Con Edison’s Solutions (retail), Energy (wholesale), and Development (power plants) businesses and manage the newly-merged finance organization, Con Edison Competitive Energy Businesses. He served as its controller and vice president of finance and accounting before restructuring CEB and assuming his current role.
Previously, Mark worked at RAD Energy, KeySpan Energy, and Shearson Lehman Brothers.
Since 2013, Mark has been a member of the board of directors for The ARC Westchester, a nonprofit organization that provides innovative support for children and adults with developmental disabilities.
Mark earned his bachelor’s degree in economics from the State University of New York at Albany and his MBA from Columbia Business School. To enhance his technical insights as a trusted financial advisor, he became a certified public accountant in 2006.
