The province has announced it will appoint former cabinet minister and Liberal leadership contender Sandra Pupatello as chair of Hydro One and former Premier of New Brunswick Bernard Lord as chair of Ontario Power Generation (OPG).
Pupatello takes the reins at Hydro One as it deals with thousands of billing complaints. OPG was the focus of a scathing Auditor General's report last year on executive compensation.
"I'd like to thank the outgoing Chairs, Mr. Epp and Mr. Arnett, and I am confident Ms. Pupatello and Mr. Lord will continue to provide thoughtful guidance needed to move our electricity sector forward," Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli said in a statement.
Pupatello has recently worked for the Windsor Essex Economic Development Corp. and PricewaterhouseCoopers. Lord is now the President and CEO of the Canadian Wireless Telecommunication Association.
The two will start their new jobs on April 1st.
