Dick Rosenblum, Ron Litzinger promoted. Harold Ray retiring
ROSEMEAD, Calif., May 4, 2005—The Southern California Edison (SCE) Board of Directors has announced three significant changes in executive management. The board has elected Ronald L. Litzinger the senior vice president of its transmission and distribution business unit, effective May 1, 2005. He replaces Richard Rosenblum, who will become senior vice president, chief nuclear officer, and head of SCE’s generation operations. Rosenblum replaces Harold Ray, who is retiring Dec. 1 as executive vice president for generation.
Before taking leadership of SCE’s transmission and distribution (T&D) organization, Rosenblum spent 20 years at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS), where he ultimately became vice president of engineering and technical services in 1993. In the coming months, Rosenblum will be preparing for his new role and supporting Litzinger’s move to T&D.
In his new position, Rosenblum will be responsible for all power generating facilities, including nuclear and related fuel supplies.
“Dick has led the company’s effort on its infrastructure replacement program which is a key part of our strategic plan,” said Al Fohrer, CEO of SCE. “The relationships he’s established over the years at San Onofre will be invaluable to our management team.”
Rosenblum earned a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in nuclear engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York.
Rosenblum and his wife, Michele, have two children and live in Coto de Caza, Calif.
