Chairman Chatterjee Names Maria Farinella to Chief of Staff Position

Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Chairman Neil Chatterjee today named FERC attorney Maria Farinella to the position of Chief of Staff for the Commission.

“Maria’s long-standing career as an energy attorney, both at FERC for the past decade and in private practice, makes her uniquely qualified to fulfill this key role,” Chatterjee said. “I want to thank Maria for her willingness to serve the Commission as my new Chief of Staff and look forward to continuing to work with her as we tackle a number of big issues before us at FERC.”

Farinella has worked in several senior positions at FERC, including as a senior attorney in the Office of the General Counsel’s Energy Markets Division from 2009-2011, and as a senior legal advisor in the Office of the General Counsel’s front office from 2011-2019. She also served as a legal advisor to Chairman Joseph Kelliher from 2007-2009. Farinella is a graduate of Smith College and American University’s Washington College of Law.
