SOUTHERN ELECTRIC INTERNATIONAL NAMES NEW VICE PRESIDENTS

 ATLANTA, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern Electric International, Inc. has named Raymond D. Hill vice president for strategic planning and mergers and acquisitions, and Ronald E. Leggett vice president for power supply, Southern Electric President Tom Boren announced today.
 Southern Electric, a subsidiary of The Southern Company (NYSE: SO), designs, builds, owns and operates power production facilities and provides a broad range of technical services to industrial companies and utilities in the U.S. and international markets.
 The Southern Company is also the parent firm of five electric utilities: Alabama Power, Georgia Power, Gulf Power, Mississippi Power and Savannah Electric. Together, these companies make up one of the largest investor-owned electric utility groups in the United States.
 Hill, 45, comes to Southern Electric from Lehman Brothers, where he served as managing director responsible for investment banking operations in Asia outside of Japan. Hill also has served on the faculty of Princeton University, where he taught in the economics department and Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
 A native of Augusta, Ga., Hill received a bachelor's degree in economics from Princeton in 1969 and a Ph.D. in economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1978.
 "A substantial part of Ray's business activities in Asia was devoted to advisory assignments for large-scale infrastructure projects, including privatized power plants," Boren said. "His background and expertise will be vital to Southern Electric's operations around the world."
 Leggett, 51, will be responsible for managing Southern Electric's power plant engineering, construction, and operations and maintenance functions.
 Previously, he served as manager of Georgia Power's Plant Bowen, one of the largest coal-fired generation plants in the Southern electric system. Leggett joined The Southern Company in 1967 as an assistant test engineer for Georgia Power. He advanced through increasing levels of responsibility in the power engineering and generation organizations, including service as manager of Georgia Power's Plant Branch and Plant Mitchell.
 A native of Jesup, Ga., Leggett received a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1966.
 "Ron brings a wealth of technical and management expertise gained through more than 25 years with the Southern electric system," Boren said.
 In addition to his new position at Southern Electric, Leggett also will serve as vice president of power generation for Georgia Power.
