Duke Energy Chairman, President and CEO Jim Rogers has announced his intent to retire from the Charlotte-based company by the end of 2013, which is consistent with the expiration of his employment contract.

Rogers has served as a CEO in the utility industry since 1988. He became president and CEO of Duke Energy following the merger between Duke Energy and Cinergy in 2006. Before the merger, he served as Cinergy's chairman and CEO for more than 11 years. Prior to the formation of Cinergy, he served as chairman, president and CEO of PSI Energy from 1988 until 1994.

"It has been an honor serving as CEO for the past 24 years and working in a dynamic industry that provides an essential service for our customers," says Rogers.

A special committee of Duke Energy’s board of directors will oversee the recommendation of a successor to Rogers.
