"I and all of Kim's coworkers at TVA will miss her leadership and expertise, as well as our personal interactions with her. We are proud of her accomplishments at TVA and in the broader utility industry, and know she will continue to be successful in her new position at Southern Company," said TVA President and CEO William D. Johnson. "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."
According to Johnson, responsibilities for Coal Operations, Gas Operations, River Operations and Renewables, Generation Construction, Power Supply and Fuels, and Engineering, Environmental & Support Services will continue to be handled by the current responsible members of the Generation leadership team. An internal and external search for a successor will begin immediately.
Prior to her current appointment, Greene was group president for Strategy & External Relations, leading several organizations responsible for TVA's strategic planning and external outreach. Previously, she served as TVA's chief financial officer, executive vice president of Financial Services and chief risk officer.
