Appreciation: Robert McGehee

Arriving here at the office this morning, everyone at NEI was shocked at the news of the passing of Robert McGehee, the chairman and CEO of Progress Energy. McGehee suffered a stroke in London this weekend while there to attend an EEI Financial Conference. He was 64.

Mr. McGehee was a member of NEI's Executive Committee and had previously served as vice-chairman. A veteran of the U.S. Navy, McGehee attended submarine school alongside our President and CEO, Skip Bowman. Needless to say, our thoughts and prayers are with the McGehee family at this time. Please keep them in yours.
