John Ketchum has been appointed executive vice president, finance, and chief financial officer for NextEra Energy Inc.

The company announced the transition after the retirement of Moray Dewhurst, vice chairman and chief financial officer. The leadership successor plan was announced in February, and Ketchum's appointment became effective Mar. 4.

According to Jim Robo, chairman and chief executive officer of NextEra Energy, Dewhurst has been a key member of the senior leadership for well over a decade and is recognized as one of the premier CFOs in the industry.

"His leadership and counsel helped guide us through a period of exceptional growth and success,” Robo said. “He has been a great friend, colleague and valued counselor to me personally, and I know I speak for all employees when I say we will miss him. We wish Moray and his family the best."

Robo said he was extremely pleased to have Ketchum lead the finance functions, as Ketchum and Dewhurst have worked very closely during the past year as part of the long-planned transition.

Ketchum is responsible for accounting, forecasting, tax, treasury, investor relations, risk management and information management. Robo said he had every confidence in Ketchum as he assume his new responsibilities.
