Allentown, Pa.-based PPL Corporation announced Thursday it had named Christine Martin as interim PPL Electric Utilities president.

Martin, a 20-year PPL employee, currently serves as the corporation’s senior vice president of Public Affairs and chief sustainability officer. She will succeed Stephanie Raymond who leaves the company on Sept. 1.

“We thank Stephanie for her service and contributions to PPL Electric Utilities over the past decade. We wish her well in her future endeavors and are fortunate to have someone of Christine’s caliber ready to step into this role as we create the utilities of the future,” Fran Sullivan, PPL executive vice president and chief operating officer, said.

PPL Electric Utilities is one of several regulated utilities in the PPL Corporation, officials said, and delivers electricity to an estimated 1.5 million homes and businesses across 29 counties in eastern and central Pennsylvania. Martin, who joined PPL in 2003, brings experience in public affairs and stakeholder engagement to her new role. Prior to her current position, she also served as vice president of Public Affairs and vice president of State Government Relations.

“I look forward to partnering closely with the PPL Electric leadership team and the broader organization, and I’m eager to engage with key stakeholders as we deliver on our mission to provide safe, reliable, affordable and sustainable energy,” she said.
