Knowing Importance of Involvement, PG&E CEO Chairs This Year’s Employee-Giving Campaign
By Tracy Correa
It’s an ambitious goal but one that Tony Earley, PG&E’s CEO, chairman and president, believes employees can meet: raise a collective $5.6 million for worthy organizations and schools through the utility’s annual Campaign for the Community.
The Campaign kicks off today (Sept. 18). And, for the first time, PG&E’s top leader – who has a long history of giving — will lead the employee challenge.
Earley joined PG&E in 2011, after three decades running utilities in Michigan and New York. In Detroit, Earley was involved in the effort to revive that city’s fortunes, including its educational system. He also worked with the United Way and the Detroit zoo.
During his first year at PG&E, Earley concentrated on the company’s immediate needs, temporarily putting volunteer work on the back burner.
