Southern Company has made executive leadership changes involving several of its subsidiaries, effective 30 July 2016.

John G. Trawick has been appointed as Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for subsidiary Southern Power. Trawick was formerly Senior Vice President of commercial operations and planning for Southern Company Services. In his new role, Trawick will lead the operations of Southern Power's expanding electric generation fleet, as well as project development and construction, and asset optimisation.

John L. Pemberton has been named Senior Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer and general counsel for Southern Power. Pemberton was previously Senior Vice President and Senior Production Officer for subsidiary Georgia Power. In his new position, Pemberton will work closely with the Southern Company system legal organisation. His additional responsibilities will include contract compliance, environmental compliance, communications, real estate and coordinating with system federal policy efforts.

"As Southern Company creates the future of energy, we are drawing from the system's exceptional leadership bench strength to support Southern Power's rapid growth," commented Southern Power President and CEO Joseph A. ‘Buzz’ Miller. "John Trawick and John Pemberton will deliver immediate value as members of Southern Power's executive team."

Theodore J. McCullough will assume Pemberton's Senior Production Officer responsibilities for Georgia Power's 17 500 MW of natural gas, coal and hydro generation. McCullough is the current Senior Vice President and Chief Production Officer for Southern Company Services. McCullough takes on this role in addition to his current duties, which include overseeing the operation of the Southern Company system's fossil, hydro and renewable generation assets.

"Over the years, John Pemberton's leadership has steadily guided Georgia Power's fleet through significant changes in our generation mix," said Paul Bowers, Chairman, President and CEO of Georgia Power. "Ted's operations expertise and broad understanding of our business ensures Georgia Power's generation fleet will continue to evolve, including more renewable projects, working with our partners across the system to provide our customers with safe, reliable and affordable energy today and into the future."
