2007 Mr. Spindletop Retires: Dominion Bids Farewell to Radtke

Dominion has announced the retirement of Duane C. Radtke as executive vice president on Dec. 31, 2007. Radtke had been responsible for the company's natural gas and oil exploration and production business.

"Dominion is extremely grateful for Duane's outstanding leadership and business counsel," said Thomas F. Farrell II, chairman, president and chief executive officer. "We wish him an enjoyable retirement. After leading a very successful expansion of our E&P business -- building it into one of the largest and most-respected independent producers in North America -- Duane was just as successful at managing the sale of most of our E&P assets as part of Dominion's refocusing on our regulated energy sales, transmission and distribution businesses and power generation."

Radtke joined Dominion as president and chief executive officer of its E&P operations in 2001. He previously worked at the Santa Fe Snyder Corp. of Houston, which merged into Devon Energy in 2000.

Radtke, a Houston resident, is a past president of Spindletop Charities Inc. and was recently honored as 2007 Mr. Spindletop for his charitable work. He is a native of Wausau, Wisc., and a graduate of the University of Wisconsin with a bachelor's degree in mining engineering.
