PG&E Grabs Southern's Boren to Lead New Group

PG&E Corp. lured in Thomas Boren, a former top executive at Southern Co., to lead its PG&E National Energy Group, last week, only a few weeks after Boren had announced his retirement at Southern. Boren, 50, will be president and CEO of the PG&E division, which includes PG&E Gas Transmission, PG&E Power Trading, and PG&E Energy Services.

"These national businesses are the primary engine for our future earnings growth," said PG&E CEO Robert D. Glynn, Jr. "Tom's experience and skill ideally suit him to lead these businesses."

Prior to his move to PG&E, Boren was president and CEO of rival Southern Energy Inc., overseeing Atlanta-based Southern Co.'s international power generation, energy trading, and energy services activities. He worked for Southern for more than 30 years and played a key role in its transformation into an independent power producer and international energy company.

Two weeks ago, Southern appointed Marce Fuller, 39, to replace Boren. Fuller became the highest ranking woman ever at Southern. She had been serving as executive vice president of Southern Energy and president and CEO of affiliate Southern Company Energy Marketing.
