Former PPL CEO Joins AES Board

Power company AES (NYSE: AES  )   has added James Miller, former CEO and Chairman of PPL, to its board of directors.

"Jim brings to AES' Board substantial experience in the energy industry, both in the U.S. and internationally, including in regulated utilities and competitive power markets," said AES Chairman Charles Rossotti in a statement today. "AES will benefit from Jim's strategic insight, track record of operational improvements and disciplined capital allocation."

According to the company's press release, Miller has more than 35 years of experience in the energy industry. He previously worked for Delmarva Power & Light, ABB Group, and USEC before joining PPL in 2001. In 2006, Miller was appointed as PPL's Chairman and CEO, positions he held until his retirement in March 2012.

With operations in both the United Kingdom and the U.S., Miller's past experience with PPL may lend itself to AES' diverse international portfolio. Under Miller's watch, PPL acquired two major Kentucky utilities and the United Kingdom's second-largest electric distribution business.
