The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection has two new deputy commissioners that began work this month.
Mary Sotos began work this week, replacing Katie Dykes, who took a job at the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority in the fall. DEEP Commissioner Rob Klee introduced her to members of the legislature's Energy and Technology Committee on Tuesday.
Sotos most recently worked for World Resources Institute, a Washington, D.C. nonprofit, and will hold the title of deputy commissioner for energy at DEEP.
Meanwhile, Bob Kaliszewski has also started working in his new role as deputy commissioner for environmental quality, succeeding Mike Sullivan, who is retiring this month after 30 years at DEEP.
Kaliszewski was most recently DEEP's bureau chief for central services. He has been with the agency since 1986.
