Through his leadership and building strategic relationships with elected officials, regulators and community leaders, Parker will advance PHI’s critical business goals such as improving infrastructure and reliability as well as deepening the relationship with the communities we serve.

Parker is taking over the post from Beverly L. Perry, current PHI senior vice president, external affairs, who announced she will retire after 22 years with the company. While Parker will assume the role of policy lead for PHI, Perry will remain at PHI as special advisor to the CEO, where she will provide executive counsel, represent the company externally and provide transition guidance to Parker until her retirement in June 2013. Perry will remain a member of the Executive Leadership Team through her retirement date.

“Ken brings the breadth of skills and public policy experience necessary to develop and sustain mutually beneficial relationships with our external stakeholders in the regulatory, political and community arenas,” said Joseph M. Rigby, chairman, president and CEO of Pepco Holdings. “His understanding of PHI’s business strategies and key initiatives, and dedication to our vision and core values, will be critical to this role. We will benefit greatly from his steady and thoughtful approach moving forward.”

Rigby added, “It has been an honor to have Beverly on PHI’s leadership team helping the company navigate the political challenges of doing business in our jurisdictions and leading PHI’s external affairs organization. Beverly’s rise from a young tobacco farmer in North Carolina to prominent lawyer, senior executive and recognition as one of the most powerful women in Washington is an inspiring story. We will miss her counsel and will wish her the best as she moves forward.”
