She is an award winning corporate attorney, human resources professional, and community volunteer who thrives when making a positive difference in the lives of others.

Dehne is a member of the Board of Directors of publicly traded Granite Point Mortgage Trust Inc., where she serves as the Chair of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, and Advanced Disposal Services, where she serves as the Chair of the Compensation Committee. Dehne also served on the Board of Directors of Silver Bay Realty Trust Corp. from 2012 to 2017. She is a Senior Advisor on corporate governance matters for The B Team, an NGO focused on mobilizing global leaders to drive a better way of doing business for the well-being of people and the planet. She is an active member of her community, serving on several not for profit boards including the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, and as Board Chair of Young Audiences New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania. She also serves on the Board of the Forum of Executive Women in Philadelphia.

At NRG for 12 years, Dehne served in various roles of increasing responsibility. As Executive Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer and Chief of Staff, she oversaw NRG’s Human Resources (11,000+ employees), Information Technology, Communications, Sustainability and Corporate Marketing departments, the company’s charitable giving program, M&A integrations, as well as the construction of NRG’s sustainable, corporate headquarters in Princeton, N.J. Prior to these positions, Dehne led NRG’s Human Resources department, which handled all HR functions, including talent management, organizational development, benefits, compensation, labor and employee relations, payroll and HR information systems. Dehne joined NRG in 2004 as Deputy General Counsel and Corporate Secretary in the Legal department, where she led corporate governance and corporate transactions including financings, and mergers and acquisitions. She previously practiced corporate law as a member of Saul Ewing’s business department.

Dehne is a frequent speaker on topics including leadership, corporate governance, climate change and talent development. In 2017, she authored an article on board culture and composition in The Legal Intelligencer entitled “Creating Long-Term Value by Changing the Supply and Demand,” and most recently co-authored an article entitled “CEO Succession and Crisis Management” in The Review of Securities & Commodities Regulation. Dehne was recently named one of the “2018 NACD Directorship 100” which recognizes the most influential leaders in the boardroom by NACD Directorship Magazine, and as a “2017 Director to Watch” by Directors & Boards.
