Westinghouse Electric Company announced that it had accepted the resignation of Jim Ferland, previously announced as incoming president and chief executive officer.

Shiga, a seasoned nuclear professional with more than 30 years of experience, was appointed as the Board's chairman in 2010, and previously served as Toshiba's chief coordination officer since it acquired Westinghouse in 2006.
