Sagara, 57, currently president of Sempra Renewables, has worked for the San Diego-based Sempra family of companies in a range of leadership roles for 22 years.
“Sustainability and innovation have become an increasingly important focus of SDG&E’s approach to customer service and Kevin Sagara’s expertise in these areas will further enhance the depth of SDG&E’s already strong leadership team,” said Joseph A. Householder, president and chief operating officer of Sempra Energy. “Kevin’s extensive commercial, legal, technology and regulatory experience will help SDG&E continue to adapt to the rapidly changing energy landscape.”
Scott D. Drury, president of SDG&E since the beginning of 2017, will continue in his current role, reporting to Sagara. Under Drury’s leadership, SDG&E has become a national leader in providing clean, safe and reliable energy. Approximately 45 percent of SDG&E’s power supplies are sourced from renewable energy.
Sagara, who will report to Householder in his new role as chairman and CEO of SDG&E, has served as president of Sempra Renewables since 2014. Sagara helped Sempra Renewables grow to become one of the largest renewable energy companies in the U.S. However, Sempra is currently exploring the sale of the business under pressure from activist investors.
He has a bachelor’s degree in geography-ecosystems from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a law degree from UC Hastings College of the Law.
