Hydropower project operator Tennessee Valley Authority's vice president and chief generation officer, Kimberly S. Greene, has announced she is leaving TVA to become president and CEO of Southern Company Services, effective April 1.
Greene joined TVA in 2007 after having previously served as the senior vice-president of finance and treasurer at Southern Company (NYSE: SO).
During her time with the Knoxville-based agency, Greene has been TVA's chief financial officer, executive vice-president of financial services and chief risk officer.
"I and all of Kim's coworkers at TVA will miss her leadership and expertise, as well as our personal interactions with her," TVA President and CEO William D. Johnson said. "As we make this transition, our generation employees will continue to focus on our key priorities of delivering low-cost and cleaner energy to the people of the Tennessee Valley."
Johnson said an external search for Greene's successor will begin immediately, with TVA's current coal operations, gas operations, river operations and renewables, generation construction, power supply and fuels, and engineering, environmental and support services will continue to be handled by utility's current team.
