Roger Kimmel on Jan. 14 resigned from the boards of PG&E Corp. and utility subsidiary Pacific Gas and Electric Co., effective immediately.
Kimmel's resignation does not involve any disagreement related to the companies' "operations, policies or practices," PG&E Corp. said in a Jan. 15 filing.
PG&E Corp. reiterated its Jan. 4 announcement that it is in search of new directors for both the holding company and the PG&E utility to enhance the companies' expertise in safety and other "critical areas."
PG&E Corp.'s board recently named John Simon interim CEO after Geisha Williams announced her resignation. Williams also resigned from the boards of PG&E Corp. and its subsidiary.
The moves come as the companies plan to seek Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in an effort to manage the fallout from the 2017 and 2018 Northern California wildfires.
