CHARLOTTE, N.C. -
Duke Energy today announced that Lynn J. Good will become Group Executive and President – Commercial Businesses, effective Nov. 15.
She succeeds Thomas C. O’Connor, who is leaving to become chairman, president and chief executive officer of DCP Midstream – the joint venture between Spectra Energy and ConocoPhillips that was formerly Duke Energy Field Services.
“Lynn’s background is a tremendous asset as we grow our commercial businesses in a disciplined way,” said James E. Rogers, chairman, president and CEO of Duke Energy. “I have great faith in her acumen in assessing new projects, acquisitions and combinations.”

Prior to that, she was executive vice president and chief financial officer for Cinergy, and previously served as Cinergy’s controller.
In her new role, Good will report directly to Rogers. The treasurer’s position she had held will be filled in the near future.
Prior to joining Cinergy in May 2003 as vice president of financial project strategy, Good was a partner with the international accounting firm, Deloitte & Touche based in Cincinnati, Ohio. From 1981 to May 2002, she worked in various levels of senior management with Arthur Andersen, rising to partner in 1992.
