The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has announced that its board of directors has a process under way to recommend a new president and CEO for TVA.

The board panel is retaining an executive search firm to identify candidates to succeed Tom Kilgore, TVA's president and CEO. Kilgore, who joined TVA in 2005, announced his intention to retire by year-end at a board meeting this month. He will continue to serve as president and CEO until completion of the search process and a successor is hired.

"All of us across the Tennessee Valley appreciate the vision and leadership that Tom has brought to TVA. Our job is to identify the next experienced leader for TVA," says Bill Sansom, chairman of the TVA board.
