CHICAGO (Nov. 14, 2018) – As part of its effort to give leaders opportunities to advance their careers, ComEd has promoted Nichole Owens to vice president of customer channels. In this role, Owens will lead the customer care center and customer relations function, direct investments in digital tools that make it easier for customers to manage their accounts and stay informed, and continue to improve customers' overall experience.
