NorthWestern Energy's Board of Directors, our management and our dedicated employees are committed to serving our customers in Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska with reliable and cost-efficient electricity and natural gas. 

To ensure our commitment to our corporate governance principles, the Board has divided the duties of Chairman of the Board and the President and Chief Executive Officer.

  • Our Chairman of the Board serves as the lead independent, nonexecutive director of the Company.
  • The President and Chief Executive Officer is our lead executive and oversees the Company's daily operations.
  • The Chairman oversees implementation of NorthWestern's independent Corporate Governance principles while the President and Chief Executive Officer is responsible for assuring that the Company's operations and employees abide by the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics.

Aided by the Board and guided by our Corporate Governance Guidelines and the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, we are continually working to improve NorthWestern's commitment to our employees, customers and the communities we serve.

  • The Code of Ethics for the CEO and Senior Financial Officers sets forth guidelines for the CEO and senior financial officers concerning their representations and other communication they make regarding the financial condition of NorthWestern.
  • The Complaint Procedures for the Audit Committee of the Board sets forth a reporting process for anyone to report a concern about accounting, internal accounting controls or auditing matters to the Audit Committee.
