In loving memory of Dan Packer


In remembrance, we celebrate the remarkable life of Dan Packer. Dan chartered his career path with a steadfast commitment to success since joining the company in 1982. He became president of Entergy New Orleans in 1996, and assumed the duties of CEO in 1998 --- going on to lead the company during a uniquely challenging era that included response to Hurricane Katrina.Packer inspired his colleagues and community with his exceptional leadership, and served as a trailblazer who paved the way for future leaders. 

As we bid our farewells, Dan’s enduring legacy remains woven into the fabric of this company. The indelible impact he left on his colleagues, the community, and the corporate landscape are a testament to a life well-lived. We extend our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones. He will be missed by his family at Entergy.
