News Release
PGE names new general counsel and corporate compliance officer to executive team - 06/19/17

PORTLAND, Ore -- Portland General Electric (NYSE: POR) today announced the appointment of Lisa Kaner as PGE's new general counsel and corporate compliance officer. Kaner will replace Jay Dudley, PGE's current general counsel and corporate compliance officer, who will retire at the end of June after nearly 30 years with PGE. Kaner will join PGE on Thursday, June 29, after more than 28 years as an attorney with the Portland business litigation firm Markowitz Herbold PC where she oversaw some of the firm's most complex and legally demanding cases. While there, she also advised and represented PGE on multiple occasions, gaining a strong knowledge of the organization.

"Lisa is a talented and proven legal expert," said Jim Piro, president and CEO. "Her leadership and many strategic accomplishments -- combined with her knowledge of PGE and regulatory issues -- distinguished her as the right person to lead our talented legal, internal audit and FERC compliance teams."

Kaner has been honored by the Portland Business Journal for being one of the region's most influential business women and recognized for her public service by the Oregon State Bar. She is an active member of the community where she has coached the Lincoln High School Constitution Team and the Jefferson High School Mock Trial Team.

Kaner earned her bachelor's degree in European history from the University of Pennsylvania, where she graduated cum laude, and her Juris Doctor from Villanova University School of Law, where she graduated magna cum laude.
