On December 29, 2020, the board of directors (the “Board”) of Pacific Gas and Electric Company (the “Utility”) appointed Sumeet Singh, Senior Vice President and Chief
Risk Officer of the Utility, as Interim President, and Chief Risk Officer of the Utility, effective January 1, 2021. He is expected to continue in the interim role until a permanent selection is made. Mr. Singh will also continue to serve as
Senior Vice President and Chief Risk Officer of PG&E Corporation. As previously disclosed, effective December 31, 2020, Michael A. Lewis will retire from his position as Interim President of the Utility.
From August 1, 2020 to the present, Mr. Singh, 42, has served as Senior Vice President and Chief Risk Office
r of PG&E Corporation and the Utility. In this role, Mr.
Singh oversees all of PG&E Corporation and the Utility’s operations and public safety, including evaluating risks associated with wildfires, nuclear, dams, natural gas, natural disasters, and the Public Safety Power Shutoff program, as well as
other strategic risks confronting utilities such as those relating to cyberattacks and the COVID-19 pandemic. Previously, from April 2020 to July 2020, Mr. Singh served as the Gas Safety & Integrity Officer at Picarro Inc., a provider of
hardware-enabled descriptive and predictive analytics for natural gas asset management. Prior to that, from 2008 to April 2020, Mr. Singh served in various roles at the Utility, including as Vice President, Asset Management and Community Wildfire
Safety Program, Vice President of Portfolio Management & Engineering in the Utility’s Gas Operations, and Vice President, Asset & Risk Management in the Utility’s Gas Operations.
In addition to his current compensation package, the Board approved an additional monthly fee of $27,000 and enhanced participation in the short-term incentive program
for Mr. Singh, in connection with his new role.
Mr. Singh will continue to be eligible to receive executive benefits, as described in PG&E Corporation and the Utility’s joint Annual Report on Form 10-K/A filed on
March 31, 2020.
There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Singh and any other persons pursuant to which he was selected as Interim President, and Chief Risk Officer of the
Utility. Further, there are no family relationships between Mr. Singh and any director or executive officer of PG&E Corporation or the Utility. In addition, Mr. Singh has not been party to any reportable transactions with PG&E Corporation
