Collins to head TVA human resources

Sue Collins has been named senior vice president and chief human resources officer for the Tennessee Valley Authority.

Collins, who has served as vice president of human resources since joining TVA in 2014, succeeds Kathy Black, who retired earlier this year as head of all aspects of TVA's people organization.

"Since joining our leadership team at TVA, Sue has led an important evolution of our human resources function to support our company's long-term, strategic goals," TVA President Bill Johnson said. "In this role, she will continue to guide an increasingly innovative organization that is vital to ensuring we maintain and continue to develop a talented, diverse workforce engaged in our mission of service at TVA."

Before joining TVA, Collins served as senior vice president of human resources for the Constellation Energy Nuclear Group, an Exelon company.
