Arthur will replace Paulette C. Pidcock, who is retiring May 1 after more than
three decades of representing major companies in the U.S. utility sector. She
has served as PPL's vice president of Federal Government Relations for eight
years.

"We thank Paulette for her outstanding service to PPL over the past eight
years and we congratulate her on a truly remarkable career in the utility
industry. While we certainly will miss her superb insights and counsel, we
wish her all the best in what I'm sure will be a very active retirement," said
Joanne H. Raphael, PPL senior vice president and Chief External Affairs
Officer.

"We are very fortunate to have someone with Dave's experience, knowledge and
energy to step into this important role in our Washington, D.C., office," said
Raphael. "We are very confident that Dave will add to PPL's legacy of active,
substantive involvement in the important issues facing the utility sector."

Arthur, currently senior director of Federal Government Relations for PPL,
joined the company in 2009. Prior to joining PPL, he spent several years as
director of Federal Legislative Affairs for Calpine Corporation. Before that,
he worked for 10 years as a federal lobbyist for a Midwestern law firm, where
he represented a variety of entities, including rural electric cooperatives,
financial service companies, municipalities, universities and large automotive
manufacturers. Prior to working in government relations, Arthur spent five
years in the federal government, working on both Capitol Hill and at the
Environmental Protection Agency. 

Arthur earned a bachelor's degree in philosophy, politics, and economics from
Balliol College, Oxford University. He also has a bachelor's degree in
environmental studies from Swarthmore College. He is a member of the American
Association of Blacks in Energy and the Washington Government Relations Group,
an organization dedicated to the enrichment of African-American government
relations professionals.

Pidcock is retiring after more than 30 years of representing energy companies
in Washington, D.C. She joined PPL in 2004 as vice president of Federal
Government Relations. 

Prior to joining PPL, she held senior federal government positions with San
Francisco-based PG&E Corporation and with Baltimore Gas & Electric Company.
