Portland General Electric has appointed Lisa Kaner as PGE’s new general counsel and corporate compliance officer. Kaner will replace Jay Dudley, PGE’s current general counsel and corporate compliance officer, who will retire at the end of June after nearly 30 years with PGE.

Kaner will join PGE on June 29, after more than 28 years as an attorney with the Portland business litigation firm Markowitz Herbold, where she oversaw some of the firm’s most complex and legally demanding cases. While there, she also advised and represented PGE on multiple occasions, gaining a strong knowledge of the organization.
