Duke Energy said Tuesday it added two members to its board of directors.
John H. Forsgren and E. James Reinsch will expand Duke's board to 12 members, the company said in a statement.
Forsgren is a former vice chairman, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Hartford, Conn.-based energy company Northeast Utilities. Reinsch is senior vice president and partner of San Francisco-based engineering and construction firm Bechtel Group.
"John will be a tremendous asset as we modernize our infrastructure during these challenging economic times, while Jim provides an impressive resume in nuclear at a time when we are considering building two new stations," Duke Energy Chairman, President and CEO Jim Rogers said in a statement.
