PECO's Michael Innocenzo co-chairs AL DÍA Hispanic Heritage Awards advisory board
The PECO CEO and President leads a board alongside Judge Nelson Diaz that includes leaders from public and private institutions across Philadelphia.
Last week, AL DÍA announced its honorees for its 2020 virtual Hispanic Heritage Awards. The five archetypes are exemplary leaders in the nonprofit, public service, health, education and business sectors.
But who selects them?
This year’s honorees were selected by an advisory board of 16 led by Judge Nelson Diaz and a new co-chair, PECO President and CEO, Michael Innocenzo.
Innocenzo has been in his position since March, 2018. Before rising to the top leadership spot, he was senior vice president and chief operating officer for five years, where he oversaw PECO’s performance in operations, safety, service reliability, customer satisfaction and fiscal management.

Beyond sitting on and co-chairing AL DÍA’s Hispanic Heritage Awards advisory board, he also serves on the board of the Philadelphia Free Library, the Philadelphia Police Athletic League, and the Southeastern Electric Exchange.
