SAN FRANCISCO, March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) today announced that it has appointed Tim Fitzpatrick as Vice President, Corporate Relations, and Chief Communications Officer. Fitzpatrick, who has led marketing and corporate communications at NextEra Energy since 2008, will oversee PG&E's internal and external communications and advertising. He will report to Greg Pruett, PG&E Corporation's Senior Vice President, Corporate Affairs.


"We're pleased to welcome Tim to the PG&E team," Pruett said. "He brings three decades of communications experience to his new role and has a proven track record of helping leading companies communicate openly and proactively with customers, employees and other stakeholders."

Fitzpatrick joined NextEra Energy in January 2008, serving as Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Communications and as an officer of Florida Power & Light Company (FPL). With 4.6 million customers, FPL is one of the largest regulated electric utilities in the country. Earlier, he held communications leadership roles with Lexmark International, Inc., the printer manufacturer and printing solutions provider; BASF, the world's largest chemical company; CDI Corporation, which provides engineering and IT outsourcing solutions; and, telecommunications provider Ameritech Corporation, now part of AT&T. He began his career as a newspaper reporter in Ohio and holds a bachelor's degree in journalism from Youngstown State University in Youngstown, Ohio.

I have been impressed by PG&E's focus on building strong relationships with customers and communities, and engaging everyone at the company in the commitment to provide reliable, affordable and, above all, safe service.
