ARLINGTON, Va., July 7, 2003 — The AES Corp. has announced that Joseph C. Brandt and William R. Luraschi have been appointed Executive Vice Presidents by the AES Board of Directors.
Brandt will also become AES’s Chief Operating Officer for Integrated Utilities and will retain his title of Chief Restructuring Officer. Integrated Utilities is one of AES’s two main lines of businesses.
Brandt assumed responsibility for AES’s businesses in Argentina in the fall of 2001, spearheaded the sale of AES NewEnergy, and since the summer of 2002 has led AES’s Restructuring Office.
Over the last two years, in addition to overseeing the company’s response to changing governance laws and regulations, Luraschi assumed a significant role for many AES business initiatives, including overall responsibility in leading AES’s successful asset sales program and helping to structure the AES parent debt refinancings. Luraschi will retain his current position as General Counsel.
