Adam Quinton
Northern District

My name is Adam Quinton. It has been my honor and privilege to serve you as a member of the Holy Cross Energy (HCE) Board since 2020. I am the HCE Treasurer and Chair of the Finance Committee of your Board.

I have been a HCE member for over 20 years and live in Edwards with my wife Mandy and our lively dog Beano. We have four grownup children who keep us pretty occupied too! I worked across the world for many years with Merrill Lynch as financial research analyst and manager. Now I am able to use my experience and expertise to contribute to our community supporting and advancing the work of HCE.

I will continue to focus on the HCE mission: providing safe, reliable, affordable and ultimately 100% clean electric service. In addition I see specific opportunities to enhance our leadership and member service by:

  • Democratizing solar and battery storage deployment (enhancing resilience, creating jobs and fighting climate change);
  • Modernizing our bills (offering more choices to pay for service and more ways to make savings);
  • Maximizing our talent (making full use of the skills and experiences of all those in our service territory)

Besides being a HCE Board member, I am President of my HoA and serve on the Board of Walking Mountains Science Center. I am an active member of Eagle County’s Climate Action Collaborative and volunteer at the Birds of Prey Downhill races.

I respectfully ask for your vote. Please contact me at: adam@adamforholycross.com
