Joseph Lillio to Serve as Burbank Water and Power Interim General Manager

Burbank City Manager Justin Hess announced Thursday that Joseph Lillio will be Burbank Water and Power’s next interim general manager.

Lillio will replace Dawn Roth Lindell, who is set to take on the new role of CEO and general manager at Seattle City Light.

Lillio began his career with BWP in May 2023. In his current position as chief financial officer for BWP, Lillio develops and implements strategies for long-term financial planning. Lillio brings more than 20 years of experience in municipal finance to his new role, having previously served as the chief financial officer for the city of El Segundo and the city of Oxnard.

“I am truly honored to have been selected to serve as the interim general manager for Burbank Water and Power,” Lillio said. “The dedication of the team at Burbank Water and Power to sustainability, reliability and serving the community is inspiring. I look forward to leading the organization and working collaboratively with the City Council and the community to ensure continued excellence in service delivery with an emphasis on affordability.”

Hess said that Lillio’s extensive financial expertise, strategic leadership and commitment to the community make him the ideal choice as the annual budget season approaches.

“I am confident that he will uphold the high standards of Burbank Water and Power, continue to guide Burbank into a more sustainable future, and ensure a seamless transition for the entire Burbank Water and Power team and its customers,” Hess said.

Lillio will assume the role of interim general manager on Feb. 5. Alliance Resource Consulting will facilitate the national recruitment process for a permanent general manager of BWP.
