Pacific Gas and Electric Co. promoted two leaders to fill roles in its electric and human resources organizations.

Patrick M. Hogan was named senior vice president, electric transmission and distribution of PG&E. Dinyar B. Mistry was named senior vice president, Human Resources of PG&E and its parent company, PG&E Corp.

Pat Hogan will report to Geisha Williams, president of electric. Dinyar Mistry will report to John Simon, executive vice president of corporate services and human resources of PG&E Corp. Both appointments become effective March 1, 2016.

"As the energy landscape continues to experience incredible change, we need executives who will help strategically position PG&E for success in the years to come. Both Pat and Dinyar are time-tested and proven leaders in our organization and in the utility industry. This is a well-earned recognition of their success, and a testament to the deep bench of talent we continue to develop within our company," said Tony Earley, PG&E Corp. chairman, CEO and president.

Hogan currently serves as vice president of electric strategy and asset management. He joined the company in 2013 and had been responsible for leading strategy across the electric organization, including asset investment, smart grid, and reliability planning.

Mistry currently serves as vice president, chief financial officer and controller of Pacific Gas and Electric Co. as well as vice president and controller of PG&E Corp. Mistry will maintain both of these Finance roles until a successor is hired.

Mistry joined PG&E in 1994 and during his career has held leadership positions of increasing responsibility in the Finance and Regulatory organizations at both PG&E and PG&E Corp., including vice president of Regulation and Rates, vice president of internal auditing/compliance and ethics, and vice president and chief risk and audit officer.
