SACRAMENTO – PG&E’s Alisa Okelo-Odongo has been named by the Sacramento Business Journal as one of the region’s top up-and-comers.
Okelo-Odongo, a government relations manager based in Sacramento, was named as one of the 40 Under 40 to Watch by the newspaper. She joined a group that includes accomplished young leaders from all aspects of business, government, education, non-profit and civic life.
At the ceremony, all the recipients were asked to share a sentence or two about who or what had greatly contributed to their success. Okelo-Odongo simply said, “I dedicate this to my mom.”
Okelo-Odongo, 30, is a graduate of the University of California, Davis. At PG&E, which she joined in late 2006, she works with elected officials, coordinates with emergency-response agencies and directs local charitable giving. In her role, she has greatly strengthened the utility’s partnerships in the region.
Earlier this year, Okelo-Odongo was invited to become a member of the American Leadership Forum – Mountain Valley Chapter. As an ALF fellow, she was hand-selected by opinion leaders in the region to join the top few hundred most influential leaders in all sectors of the community.

Earlier this month, the Business Journal honored PG&E with its Partners in Philanthropy award. The honor acknowledges PG&E’s high level of monetary support for charitable non-profit organizations and local government agencies throughout the Capital Region.
