WINNIPEG — The CEO of Manitoba Hydro is to step down in September.

Manitoba Hydro Electric Board says Scott Thomson is leaving to take a job in the private sector.

He joined the Crown-owned utility in February 2012 and has been involved in securing approvals for the Keeyask hydroelectric project and the Bipole III transmission project.

Manitoba Hydro says it will start the process of looking to hire his successor in the coming days.

The Crown corporation supplies electricity and natural gas to hundreds of thousands of Manitobans and exports power to the U.S. and to other provinces.
