NiSource Says Goodbye To Executive Staton

Posted on

NiSource Inc. announced that Jimmy D. Staton, executive vice president and group CEO for the company’s Columbia Pipeline Group business unit, has elected to retire from the company, effective March 31, 2014. Staton’s retirement comes following six intense years of effort that spanned three NiSource business units and involved initiatives and operations across the company’s 16-state footprint. During his time with NiSource, Staton led strategic business reviews that addressed legacy issues, enhanced customer focus, improved stakeholder relationships and helped establish robust, sustainable platforms for long-term growth.
  With the company’s natural gas pipeline, storage and midstream strategies well established, and skilled, execution-focused teams in place, Staton said this became a logical point to consider a change. NiSource plans to use the next several months to consider potential candidates to assume the permanent leadership role at CPG.
