Duke Energy chairman Jim Rogers tops industry magazine listing

Duke Energy chairman Jim Rogers is the most influential person in the power generation industry, Power Engineering magazine said Tuesday.

Rogers, who is Duke’s former chief executive, was a utility industry CEO for 25 years. Power Engineering cited the 12 percent average total shareholder return the companies he led achieved, their sustainable growth and “well-timed” mergers and acquisitions.

The Edison Electric Institute awarded Rogers its Distinguished Leadership Award this year. The Alliance to Save Energy gave Rogers his Lifetime Achievement Award. Rogers will retire from Duke at the end of the year.

Power Engineering named former General Electric CEO Jack Welch second most-influential, and former Duke CEO Bill Lee number third. Siemens Energy, a major Charlotte employer, placed CEO Michael Suess fifth on the list and Energy Service Division CEO Randy Zwirn sixth.
