“You always have mixed feelings when you leave a site like Peach Bottom,” Maguire said. “I have a deep sense of loyalty and commitment to the professionals at Peach Bottom while at the same time I am looking forward to the opportunities that lie ahead at a new station.”
As the new site vice president, Dougherty’s primary responsibility will be to oversee the safe and reliable operation of Peach Bottom Station and to ensure the public is kept informed of the operation of the plant. Dougherty has more than 20 years of experience in management and operational support of nuclear stations, serving most recently as the plant manager for the Three Mile Island Generating Station near Middletown, Pa.
Before joining Three Mile Island Unit 1 as plant manager in 2006, Dougherty was work management director at the Limerick Generating Station. Dougherty served in several leadership positions at Limerick, including shift operations superintendent and operations training manager. Before Limerick, Dougherty served in the U.S. Nuclear Navy Power Program.
“We have an aggressive leadership training program at Exelon which often results in executives managing several stations throughout their career,” said Joe Grimes, senior vice president for Exelon’s Mid-Atlantic Region. “The result is world-class leadership.”
