The company will miss her as she enjoys her retirement years.
“When Carter retires, Carlos Brown will pick up most of her duties. Carlos has a depth and breadth of experience that will serve him well as he leads Dominion Energy’s law, corporate governance, environmental, IT, supply chain, corporate facilities and corporate safety and security teams.”
