Stocks in this article: AWR

Effective January 2, 2013, American States Water Company (“AWR”) appointed John R. Fielder as a class III director of the Company to serve until the Company’s annual meeting in 2014 or until his successor is duly elected and qualified. Mr. Fielder is also appointed as a director of the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Golden State Water Company. In addition, the size of the respective boards of directors has been increased from ten to eleven.

Following a distinguished 40-year career with Southern California Edison Company (“SCE”), Mr. Fielder retired at the end of 2010 as President of SCE, where he was responsible for operations support, customer service, information technology, environmental affairs, state regulatory and public affairs, and employee relations. He also worked with the CEO of SCE to develop the strategy for the company. Before being promoted to President of SCE in 2005, he held various leadership positions including Senior Vice President of Regulatory Policy and Affairs for 14 years, and Vice President of Information Services.

Mr. Fielder has served on a number of not-for-profit boards during his career and currently serves as chairman of the board of the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific and as a board member of both the Long Beach Memorial Hospital Foundation and the Rancho Los Cerritos Foundation. He also currently serves as a member of the Energy Efficiency Institute Global Advisory Committee for the University of California, Santa Barbara. He had also served on various industry association boards during his career.

“Mr. Fielder brings a unique blend of experience to our board that will be very helpful to the Company. His experience as a leader of an investor-owned utility that operates in southern California and his deep California regulatory expertise give him a great perspective,” said Lloyd E. Ross, chairman of the board of directors of AWR. “We are delighted to have him join the board of directors of the Company.”
