ISELIN, N.J., May 30, 2024 – Middlesex Water Company (NASDAQ:MSEX), a provider of water, wastewater and related utility services, is pleased to announce that its Chairman of the Board, Dennis W. Doll, has been honored with the Distinguished Service Award from the New Jersey Utilities Association (NJUA) at its 2024 Annual Conference. Doll, who served as past Chairman of NJUA, was honored for his 35 years of industry service and leadership.

Dennis Doll joined Middlesex Water as Executive Vice President in 2004 and was named President and Chief Executive Officer, and a Director of Middlesex, in 2006. Doll has served as Middlesex Chairman since May 2010 and was recently reelected to that position through May 2025.

During Mr. Doll’s tenure at Middlesex, the Company enjoyed significant organic customer growth and numerous successes: putting in place Water for Tomorrow — the largest capital improvement program in the Company’s history, successfully navigating numerous rate filings, hardening the company’s security and cyber protections, and executing critical investments to position the company for compliance with new regulatory requirements. He has also served as Past President of the National Association of Water Companies, Chairman of the Board of The Water Research Foundation and a Director and member of the Executive Committee of the Board of the American Water Works Association.

Doll retired as President and CEO of Middlesex Water in February 2024. He was succeeded by Nadine Leslie, an accomplished leader with more than 25 years of industry experience in operations, management, compliance and client relations.

As part of Mr. Doll’s recognition, NJUA has made a contribution to Court Appointed Special Advocates of Middlesex County (CASA). Mr. Doll serves as Treasurer and member of the CASA Board.

Also honored posthumously at NJUA’s Annual Conference with a Distinguished Service Award was the late Joseph Fiordaliso, who served as a long time Commissioner and President of the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities and championed the state’s transition to cleaner energy.
