Hugh McDonald began his career with Entergy in 1982, working at Entergy’s Waterford 3 nuclear plant in Taft, Louisiana, and held executive positions Entergy Mississippi, Entergy Texas and Entergy Retail Operations before moving in 2000 to his current position.
As CEO of Entergy Arkansas, he has overseen the company’s withdrawal from the system agreement that stuck Arkansas ratepayers with the cost of producing electricity in other Entergy states. He serves on the boards of the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce and Arkansas Research Alliance.
