Our customers and other stakeholders will continue to benefit from his continued engagement on and oversight of that important piece of Georgia’s energy future.”
Tucker will also transition into the role of executive vice president for Southern Company Sept. 1 where he will bring more than 20 years of experience within Southern Company, including time at Georgia Power and Southern Company Gas, to his new role.
