Congratulations, John McDonald,
IEEE-HKN for 50 Years
John McDonald, P.E., Smart Grid Business Development Leader for GE's
Grid Solutions business, is an exemplary IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu member who
demonstrates how to pursue excellence in all areas. John has published 150
papers and articles, co-authored five books, has one US patent, and has held
countless leadership positions in different organizations.
The quest for academic and professional excellence needs to be coupled
with the pursuit for relationship excellence, he says. One way to pursue
relationship excellence is by constantly looking for ways to give back.
" We can always find the time to do what we want to do, " he says. " No
matter how busy I am, I will find time to help others succeed. "
John is a dedicated volunteer with IEEE-HKN, serving on the Strategic
Planning Committee. Through IEEE-HKN, he says he is able to inspire others
and encourage them in their professional journey by being a role model
who leads others by his actions, not just his words. In fact, he recently gave
of his time again by offering a session on the " 12 Key Insights to Career
Management " at IEEE-HKN's Pathways to Industry program. You may watch
it by following this link.
He says he enjoys giving back to Eta Kappa Nu because of the reinforcement
and confidence he received when being inducted as a student in 1971.
As he thinks over his years in industry, he realized: " I've come to the point in
my career where I've already had plenty of awards and recognition, I don't
need that anymore. My greatest satisfaction is helping a young person be
successful themself, and when they achieve success, seeing how happy
they are and knowing I had something to do with that. What really drives
me today is to help other people. "
John is an IEEE Foundation Director, and has served on the Board of
Governors of the IEEE-SA (Standards Association). He is Past President
of the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES), the Past Chair of the IEEE PES
Substations Committee, and the IEEE Division VII Past Director.
John, a Life Fellow of IEEE, was awarded the IEEE Millennium Medal, the IEEE
Power & Energy Society Excellence in Power Distribution Engineering Award,
the IEEE PES Substations Committee Distinguished Service Award, and the
IEEE PES Meritorious Service Award.
Congratulations, John! We thank you for all you have given to the
IEEE-HKN family.
