Dominion Energy Inc. Executive Chair Thomas F. Farrell II is retiring from Altria Group Inc.’s board of directors, which he has chaired since April 2020.
Farrell has served on the Henrico County-based tobacco product manufacturer’s board of directors since 2008. He will retire from the Altria board when his term ends in May.

In addition to serving as Altria’s board chairman, Farrell chaired the board’s executive committee and was a member of several committees, including Corporate Governance.
Farrell transitioned from his 13-year role as Dominion’s chairman, president and CEO in October 2020, taking the position of executive chair for the Richmond-based utility.
