Pinnacle West Announces Corporate Realignment; Jack Davis Appointed CEO of APS


PHOENIX- Arizona Public Service (APS) and its parent company, Pinnacle West Capital Corporation (NYSE: PNW), today announced a corporate realignment designed to better position its regulated and unregulated businesses in light of its current and anticipated operating circumstances.

"The regulatory environment in Arizona is being reshaped and we need to be positioned for the markets of the future," said Pinnacle West Chairman and CEO Bill Post.

Post said that Jack E. Davis, President of Energy Delivery and Sales for APS, has assumed the additional title and responsibilities of Chief Executive Officer of APS. Davis will report to Post and will be responsible for managing the regulated enterprise and assets of APS. The Company’s unregulated businesses and competitive generation in Pinnacle West Energy will remain at the holding company level, and Pinnacle West Energy President Bill Stewart will continue to report directly to Post.

"Jack Davis has guided APS through some volatile waters with results that stand up against any energy provider in the West, and we will need that same level of performance in order to prosper in tomorrow’s markets," Post said.

Davis is a graduate of New Mexico State University. He joined APS in 1973 as an engineer in the System Planning Department. Subsequently, he earned management positions overseeing Power Contracts, System Development and Power Operations, Fossil Generation, Transmission Systems, Customer Service, and Power Marketing & Trading at APS.
