29100718960_3bd08b2096_o

The United States was founded by some of history’s most dedicated and forward-thinking individuals, committed to improvement for the greater good. PSEG Long Island is proud to embody much of the same dedication and employ individuals who work hard for the public, both in and out of the office.

In their spare time, our president and vice presidents support some of the island’s largest and influential non-profits through volunteer work and advisory. Meet three members of our senior leadership team devoted to the betterment of Nassau, Suffolk and the Rockaways.

Dave Daly, President & COO

united-way-152Dave Daly’s dedication to serving PSEG Long Island’s service territory doesn’t stop with PSEG Long Island. He is board member for the Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center (AERTC) at Stony Brook University, an organization focused around energy research, education and technology with a focus on efficiency, conservation, renewable energy and nanotechnology applications. Daly also works with the Long Island Association (LIA) as a board member to advocate for clean, healthy and safe working environments, as well as promoting fair business practices on Long Island.

Additionally, Daly serves as a board member for the American Red Cross of Long Island as well as the United Way of Long Island. In 2016, PSEG Long Island partnered with the United Way to form Be Ready LI, an emergency preparedness site to provide Long Islanders and customers in the Rockaway with a one-stop-shop with emergency-related resources.

Vaughn L. McKoy, Vice President of Legal

Vaughn L. McKoy has been PSEG Long Island’s legal vice president since July 2014, but his commitment to improving the lives of others dates back far before his time with the company. The former college athlete made his way out of public housing through his love and dedication to sports, and later realized his passion for public service thanks to an unlikely mentor– casino magnate, civic leader and philanthropist Arthur M. Goldberg.

Inspired by Goldberg, McKoy has committed much of his time to becoming a mentor to others. The former New Jersey and federal prosecutor serves on the boards of numerous regional organizations, including Rutgers University, UNCF, The Boys and Girls Clubs of New Jersey, and the Mentorship Partnership of New York. He is also the author of “Playing Up: One man’s rise from public housing to public service through mentorship,” and offers coaching to help others achieve their professional and personal goals.

Dan Eichhorn, P.E., Vice President of Customer Experience

Dan Eichhorn’s top priority at PSEG Long Island is creating a positive experience for our customers – from new technology to improving customer service, he and his team are driven by improvement. Eichhorn also takes this philosophy and experience to bring positivity and progress to Long Island beyond business.

As a board member of Island Harvest, Eichhorn works with the non-profit to end hunger and reduce food waste across the island. The organization collects food donations to be distributed to shelters and food pantries. PSEG Long Island partnered with the organization in fall of 2016 to raise awareness for its fight against hunger through a series of events at local malls.

Additional Community Outreach

While these president and vice presidents’ efforts are impressive, they aren’t alone. PSEG Long Island has 23 employees who sit on executive boards for local charities, and hundreds of others who volunteer their time to improve Long Island and the Rockaways.
