Three key positions at the Columbia Power Corp. remain unfilled many months after they were vacated, Public Eye has learned. Its president and chief executive officer Barry Chuddy resigned on July 3, 2009 after just over two years on the job to spend more time with his family. Six months later, the Crown corporation's operations vice-president Amy Stevenson resigned "to pursue another opportunity" according to its fiscal 2010/11 service plan. And now Columbia Power has disclosed its chief financial officer Gordon Goodling resigned two months after that. The corporation's executive compensation statement also indicates none of those positions have been filled. Although special advisor to the board Gerry Duffy is acting "in the absence of a CEO." Columbia Power hasn't responded to a request for comment placed last week.
