SCEcorp SENIOR VP & CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER ALAN FOHRER NAMED INTERIM VICE CHAIRMAN AND CEO OF MISSION ENERGY CO.

 ROSEMEAD, Calif., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Alan J. Fohrer, senior vice president and chief financial officer of SCEcorp, has been named vice chairman and chief executive officer of Mission Energy Co., a subsidiary of SCEcorp. James S. Pignatelli, who had been chief executive officer of Mission Energy, continues as president of the subsidiary.
 John E. Bryson, chairman and chief executive officer of SCEcorp and chairman of Mission Energy, said that Fohrer's appointment as chief executive officer of Mission Energy is an interim measure until completion of a search Mission has launched for a new chief executive officer. "We seek to enhance our already excellent strategic position in the domestic and the burgeoning international electric power markets," Bryson said. Mission Energy has recognized the need for change, resulting from its dramatic growth, and it will place emphasis in its search on candidates with experience in managing large and complex global businesses, he said.
 Mission Energy's business focus and expected near-term results are unaffected by this management change, Bryson said. "All of the projects we have on line are operating well, and projects under development are proceeding in accord with our long-range plans," Bryson said. "We expect that the officers and senior managers of the company will remain in place and continue with their responsibilities."
 In the short term Pignatelli will devote his efforts to development of international projects. Bryson said that discussions are ongoing with Pignatelli regarding his longer-term role with Mission Energy and SCEcorp. "I am hopeful that Jim's talents and experience will continue to be available to us as we move forward," Bryson said.
