Gary Taylor, group president of utility operations at Entergy Corporation, will be retiring from the company May 31. Taylor will continue to lead utility operations with a transition period to his successor, who will be named at a later date.
In addition, Robert (Bob) Sloan, executive vice president and general counsel, announced his decision to retire as general counsel. Replacing Sloan is Marcus Brown, who was elected Jan. 27 by the company’s board of directors to the position of senior vice president and general counsel. Brown reports to Rod West, executive vice president, and chief administrative officer. Sloan has agreed to serve as special counsel during a period of transition.
Taylor has held leadership roles in both Entergy’s nuclear and utility business. Prior to his current role of group president of utility operations, a role he has held since 2007, Taylor served as CEO of Entergy’s nuclear business. He joined the company in 2000 as COO of the company’s Nuclear South region.
Sloan joined Entergy in 2003 as senior vice president, general counsel and secretary, and brought with him more than 30 years of legal experience. Before joining the company, he was vice president and general counsel at GE Industrial Systems.
Brown brings to his new role experience, a career in private practice and a 17-year career with the company. Formerly vice president and deputy general counsel for Entergy, Brown began his career with Entergy in 1995. Brown is also a member of the Legal Department’s Management Committee.
Brown earned a juris doctorate from Southern University Law Center in 1988 where he was a member of the Law Review, an MBA from Tulane University in 2002 and, in 2009, received a certification in corporate governance from Harvard Business School.
