Veolia, an environmental solutions and optimized resource management company, has named William J. "Bill" DiCroce as the new president and CEO of Veolia North America. 

With approximately 7,800 employees, Veolia North America provides comprehensive water, energy, waste and resource recovery solutions to more than 530 cities and 30,000 businesses.

DiCroce succeeds Terry Mah, who served as the company's CEO since 2013 and now leads business development activities in the Americas as senior vice president for Veolia's Global Enterprises group.

A 32-year veteran of the energy and environmental industries, including 20 years in the nuclear industry, DiCroce previously served as President and Chief Operating Officer of Veolia North America's Municipal and Commercial business. Prior to the consolidation of Veolia's water, energy and waste businesses in 2013, DiCroce served as President and CEO of Veolia Energy North America, following his successful four-year role as the company's executive vice president and chief operating officer. He joined Veolia in June 2008.

"More than ever, our services can make a very real difference for cities, campuses, companies and other organizations looking for environmental services and resource solutions – whether it's managing, conserving and recovering energy or water resources for cities or helping a refinery with their operations or with a critical turnaround," said DiCroce. "I'm very excited to be leading so many talented environmental professionals throughout the United States, Canada and the Caribbean, and I look forward to building a dynamic future for our team and for the customers we serve."

Before joining Veolia, DiCroce was president and chief operating officer of NSTAR Electric and Gas Company's unregulated subsidiaries, which owned and operated district energy and telecommunications businesses and private utilities in the greater Boston area. Prior to that, DiCroce held operational and executive positions with Entergy Nuclear and Boston Edison. He began his career with General Electric at the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory, where he was certified as a nuclear power engineer within the U.S. Naval Nuclear Propulsion program. 

DiCroce earned a bachelor's degree in marine engineering at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy and an M.B.A. at Boston University. At the Massachusetts Maritime Academy, he served as an adjunct professor for nuclear power technology. He serves on various boards of directors including the International District Energy Assn. (IDEA), the Advanced Energy Economy and the Northeast Clean Energy Council.
