NERC CEO quits after reported arrest for domestic violence

Gerry Cauley has resigned as president and CEO of the North American Electric Reliability Corp., following a reported domestic violence charge.

As previously reported, Cauley was arrested in Gwinnett County, Ga., on Nov. 10 and Atlanta-based NERC announced the next day that he was on a leave of absence.

The NERC board of trustees said Charles Berardesco will remain as acting CEO, while it engages a search firm to find a replacement for Cauley. "NERC has a talented staff and an experienced leadership team that is well-equipped to continue the forward momentum on key initiatives. I am confident we will continue to meet milestones and expectations going forward," said board chair Roy Thilly.
