Charlotte-based Duke Energy on Tuesday announced two executive appointments and the formation of a new technology business group.
Dhiaa Jamil has been named executive vice president and chief operating officer, and Melissa Anderson has been named executive vice president, administration and chief human resources officer, Duke said in a statement.
In his new role, Jamil will also oversee supply chain organization. He currently oversees nuclear, fossil/hydro, fuels and systems optimization, coal combustion products and transmission operations, along with construction, major projects and environmental health and safety, Duke said in a statement.
Anderson will oversee Duke’s administrative services organization in addition to her current human resources responsibilities.
In addition to the two executive appointments, Duke announced the formation of a new business transformation and technology group, which is made up of Duke’s existing IT and security organizations as well as resources dedicated to business transformation, the company said.
Brian Savoy, who has served as senior vice president, chief accounting officer and controller since 2013, will lead the new group. Succeeding Savoy will be Bill Currens, who is currently vice president, investor relations. And succeeding Currens will be Michael Callahan, who is currently the director of regulated utilities forecasting.
Savoy, Currens and Callahan will report to Steve Young, executive vice president and chief financial officer. The appointments are effective May 16, Duke said.
“This new group reflects the importance of technology as a transformational tool to achieve our strategic objectives,” Young said.
In other recent executive changes, Duke said earlier this year that A.R. Mullinax, executive vice president of strategic services, will retire May 1.
