Duke Energy shuffled the duties of a half-dozen top executives Monday and announced the departure of another in the aftermath of a merger settlement approved by the N.C. Utilities Commission.
The settlement, formally approved last week, ended an investigation of the Duke-Progress Energy merger. It dictated replacement of two Duke executives: chief legal officer Marc Manly and Keith Trent, executive vice president of regulated utilities.
Manly will become president of commercial businesses, Duke said. Julie Janson, previously state president of Dukes Ohio and Kentucky utilities, will replace Manly as chiel legal officer.
Janson will be replaced in Ohio and Kentucky by Jim Henning, formerly vice president of government and regulatory affairs in those states.
Trent will become chief operating officer of regulated utilities. He will work with Lloyd Yates, a former Progress executive who was announced earlier as the new executive vice president of regulated utilities.
Chief nuclear officer Dhiaa Jamil will add to his duties oversight of companywide project management and construction.
Jeff Lyash, a former Progress executive who became Dukes executive vice president of energy supply, will leave the company Dec. 31.
CEO Jim Rogers will also retire by the end of 2013, under the terms of the settlement agreement.
