Jason Few, president of Reliant Energy since 2009, has left the company, according to the Houston Chronicle. Few stepped down on Friday and a spokeswoman for Reliant offered the Chronicle no explanation for the abrupt exit.
Few’s last day was Friday, and his departure was announced to employees in an internal memo. Reliant spokeswoman Pat Hammond confirmed Few had left, but offered no explanation for the abrupt exit.
"He’s left the company to pursue other opportunities," she said.
Few also served as executive vice president and chief customer officer for Reliant’s parent, NRG Energy. He joined the company in 2008.
Previously, the Washington Free Beacon has reported on Few’s connection to President Barack Obama. His wife, Arvia Few, is an Obama bundler and committed to raising between $50,000 and $100,000 for the president’s reelection effort.
It is unclear if Few also has his eye on a role in a second Obama Administration.
