Kimberly Harris named CEO of Puget Sound Energy


Kimberly Harris, president of Puget Sound Energy, was named chief executive officer, effective March 1, by the board of directors. Harris, who has been with PSE since 1999, succeeds Steve Reynolds, who retired after heading the utility since 2002.
Harris, 46, came to the Puget Sound area in 1995 to practice law with the firm of Perkins Coie. She joined PSE as associate general counsel four years later.
Prior to being named president of PSE in June 2010, Harris served as executive vice president and chief resource officer beginning in 2007. In this role she led the operation of the company’s wind power facilities, which, with a capacity to produce the electricity equivalent to that used by more than 100,000 homes, is the nation’s second-largest utility owned and operated wind resource.
She also guided development of the company’s Lower Snake River Wind Project, currently under construction near Pomeroy, Garfield County.
Harris was also responsible for the utility’s residential and business energy efficiency services.
