    Today, AES Ohio, a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), announced the strategic shift of two leaders who are transitioning into new and expanded roles to serve the customer and communications teams. Both are focused on helping lead and accelerate efforts in Indiana and Ohio and dedicated to finding and communicating new and innovative solutions to help customers achieve their most important objectives of reliability, affordability, and sustainability.

    Brandi Davis-Handy has been named Chief Customer Officer for AES US Utilities. Davis-Handy’s career includes two decades of leadership in communications, marketing, strategy, and stakeholder engagement. During her seven years with AES, Davis-Handy has led communications for US Utilities and the US business unit, most recently serving as Chief Public Relations Officer for the US Utilities. Under her leadership will be the following units: Customer Care, Strategic Accounts, Utility Transformation, Customer Experience, Demand Side Management, Electrification and Economic Development. 

    Tanya Sovinski has been promoted to Senior Director, Public Relations. Sovinski will oversee communications, stakeholder relations, and community efforts for both AES Indiana and Ohio. Sovinski has more than 20 years of experience in strategic partnerships, marketing, and communications in the private and non-profit sectors. She joined AES Indiana in 2016 and since that time has helped grow AES Indiana’s community presence and maintain critical stakeholder relationships.

    Additionally, two other leaders were promoted.

    Bryan Hylander has been promoted to General Counsel, AES US Utilities and Conventional Generation. Hylander previously held the position of Assistant General Counsel and has spent 12 years of his career with AES handling various legal matters for the company. He has successfully transitioned into his new role and continues to build a strong team culture, positioning the company for ongoing success.  

    Sharon Schroder will lead the AES US Utilities Regulatory teams as Managing Director, Regulatory Affairs. Schroeder has spent 26 years of her career with AES, and she has broad experience across our utilities, including both state and FERC regulatory affairs, and customer strategic accounts. Additionally, Sharon gained business development, community relations and sales experience while working for DPL Energy Resources, AES’ retail affiliate.
