UNS Energy Announces Executive Management Changes

The Board of Directors of UNS Energy Corporation (NYSE: UNS) has named President David G. Hutchens as the company’s Chief Operating Officer (COO). The new, second title reflects Hutchens’ direct oversight of the business operations of UNS Energy and its subsidiaries, including Tucson Electric Power (TEP) and UniSource Energy Services (UES).

“Dave is an innovative, dynamic leader with deep knowledge of our utility operations,” said Paul Bonavia, UNS Energy’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “In this expanded role, he will continue improving the efficiency and effectiveness of our organization and leading our strategic response to a rapidly changing industry.”

Hutchens served five years as a nuclear submarine officer in the U.S. Navy and worked as an engineer before joining TEP as an energy analyst in July 1995. He later held management positions overseeing wholesale energy sales and, in January 2007, was named Vice President of Wholesale Energy and UNS Gas, an operating subsidiary of UES. He became vice president of Energy Efficiency and Resource Planning in May 2009 and rose to Executive Vice President in March 2011 before being named President in December 2012.

In another key move, Philip J. Dion has been promoted to Senior Vice President of Public Policy and Customer Solutions. Dion, who previously served as Vice President of Public Policy, will oversee Customer Service, Regulatory and Government Relations, Communications and Marketing and Environmental Services.

“Phil’s experience and insights will help us ensure that our service remains responsive to our customers’ evolving energy needs,” Bonavia said.

Dion served as an advisor at the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) and was chief of staff for Commissioner Marc Spitzer of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) before joining UNS Energy in February 2008 as Vice President of Legal and Environmental Services.

The board also has named Frank P. Marino as Vice President and Controller. Marino will oversee the company’s Financial Accounting, Payroll, Plant Accounting, Energy Settlements and Tax Services areas under the direction of Kevin Larson, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.
