“It is a privilege to have this opportunity at a great company like Luminant,”
said McFarland. “I can’t say enough about the strength of talent within this
organization and the pride our employees take in helping power Texas. I look
forward to continuing the Luminant tradition of safe and strong commercial and
operational excellence.”

McFarland succeeds David Campbell, who resigned effective Dec. 31 to begin a
new role as a principal at an energy-focused investment firm in Dallas.

In his previous role, McFarland and his team were responsible for optimizing
the dispatch and value of the company’s generation fleet; managing the
commodity, transportation and emissions requirements for its operating assets;
driving asset management, trading and portfolio management in ERCOT; providing
oversight of Luminant’s state and federal wholesale market design; and leading
generation and development activities.

Prior to joining the company, McFarland held leadership roles in the finance,
mergers and acquisitions and marketing and trading organizations at Exelon
Corporation for nearly 10 years. Before that, he held various commercial
finance and engineering positions in technology and
architect-engineering-construction firms.
