PUF's Steve Mitnick: Is this a fun job?
Joe Hamrock: I'm having a lot of fun. Great people, great industry, great time to be in the business, dynamic change all around us.
Our focus at NiSource now is what you are seeing across the industry, this real new emphasis on customers. Customers' expectations, evolving needs, and increasing interest in energy issues.
I think that's a good thing. It gives us an opportunity to be responsive and help advance how we serve customers while we're investing in infrastructure and modernizing systems across both the electric and gas industry.
