Jim Rogers

Former Chairman and CEO, Duke Energy

If you’re serious about climate legislation, you have to be serious about nuclear because of the role it plays in providing zero greenhouse gases 24/7.

As the former President and CEO for Duke Energy, Jim Rogers oversaw the largest electrical utility in the U.S. for seven years. He brought with him over 25 years of executive experience in the utility industry. Over that period, he delivered an average total shareholder return of more than 12 percent per year by focusing on sustainable growth and executing a series of well-timed mergers, acquisitions and divestitures. Because of this work, the Alliance to Save Energy honored Rogers with its Lifetime Achievement Award.

In the course of his career, Rogers served on the boards of directors of eight Fortune 500 companies. He passed away in late 2018.
