      FirstEnergy Corp. (NYSE: FE), a United States-based utility company, has named Brian X. Tierney as its president and chief executive officer, effective June 1, 2023.

      Tierney succeeds interim president and chief executive officer John W. Somerhalder II. He has served as the global head of Portfolio Operations and Asset Management for Blackstone. He has served for 23 years at American Electric Power Company, Inc. (AEP) where he worked in various leadership positions. He has 28 years of experience in the industry.

      Somerhalder said, 'Brian Tierney is a proven leader with deep experience in the energy industry, a unique blend of operational, financial and strategic skills, and a sterling record of driving growth and transformation within our sector. Over the last several years, we have taken decisive actions to reposition FirstEnergy for the future. The board's search committee set out to identify a leader who could continue the important work underway to drive the company forward while bringing critical outside expertise and perspectives. We could not have selected a better suited candidate than Brian. We look forward to working closely with him to build on FirstEnergy's momentum and enhance value for our shareholders and other stakeholders.'
