John McLain
John McLainPresident
From 1968-1981, I served in Marine Corp, worked at SCE on line-crews, married my sweetheart, graduated from college, transferred to accounting department, and became a father to my two children. We moved to Oregon to work at PGE 1981-2014 beginning in financial planning, then moving on to many admin and customer programs, went back to school to get an MBA, coached youth soccer, and earned a national soccer coaching license. In semi-retirement I did some consulting and teaching as adjunct faculty at local colleges and universities. I am now fully retired, trying to improve at golf, tennis, photography, and music, as well as serving on several non-profit Boards.

Greg RifeVice President, Communications Committee member
I started at PGE on June 27, 1983 shortly after graduating from Oregon State University. During my 37 year career I held various positions in PGE’s planning, forecasting, accounting, and financial reporting functions. I completed my career managing Ethics and Compliance before retiring on October 2, 2020. I enjoy golf, photography, and scuba diving. I am also an active member of PGE’s golf league and amateur radio club.
Terry Clelen
Terry ClelenBoard Director, Communications Committee Tri-Chair
I was hired in 1997 as a Corporate Communications assistant and moved into Community Affairs a year later. My 21-year career ended in 2018, from what I consider the best job in the company, administering the Company’s community engagement programs. Yes, it was me who relentlessly reminded you to “Record your volunteer hours”, “Apply for a Cause Card” and “Give during the Employee Giving Campaign and apply for the Company match!”
I keep busy with my Neighborhood Emergency Team, sewing masks for Portland Mask Project, serving on the PGE Retiree board and class reunion committees, lunching and taking long “walk and talks” with friends. I enjoy cooking, gardening, babysitting my grandgirls and attempting to improve my golf game. I live in Portland with my husband, John.

Stan Chiotti
Stan ChiottiBoard Director, Past President
My Dad worked for PGE, and I joined PGE on 2/8/1968. I read meters out of the Gresham Division for six months and then moved to the Trojan nuclear project at the Yeon Building. The small staff grew to 1300 over the next 25 years (for me, 20 in operations and 5 in engineering) until plant terminated in 1993. After leaving PGE to work at a Nuclear Plant in New York, I was rehired by PGE in 1997 to help with the decommissioning of the spent fuel rods which ended in 2003, at which time I retired.

Norby Chartrey
Norby ChartreyBoard Director
I started at PGE in October of 1960 as a meter reader. In 1965, I moved to the Valuation Dept. as a Valuation Tech. As part of the Onsite accounting team I moved to the Trojan Nuclear Plant in 1970. I became the manager of the Property Accounting Department in 1975 eventually as supervisor of Generation Accounting. I had the distinction of being one of the few people that had visited every substation and generating site the company owned at the time.
Ed Gorman
Ed GormanBoard Director, Communications Committee Tri-Chair
I began at PGE as a Meter Reader in 1977, enthused by the ability to work outdoors and go home upon completion of the day’s route:-). Following the onset of fatherhood I had to get serious and worked my way to Service and Design as a Service and Design Project Manager. That was a great fit and I retired in 2017 as Service & Design Supervisor at Portland Service Center. These days I focus on trying to not screw up digital media for PGE Retirees Inc.
MinhHang Tran
MinhHang TranBoard Director
Hello there! I had the pleasure of working at PGE for 43 years, from 1978 until I retired in 2021. During my long tenure, I mostly worked in the Records Management Department, where I had the opportunity to support the Trojan Nuclear Plant until its closure. Afterward, I moved downtown and was responsible for Corporate Records Management.
In my free time, I like to keep myself busy by playing tennis and pickleball. I also enjoy exploring the neighborhood’s trails with my husband, Cuong, and making sure I hit my 10,000 steps goal each day. Additionally, cooking is one of my favorite pastimes, as well as spending time with my grandson, Jase. He’s my first and only grandchild so far, but that’s all going to change in March
2024 when Jase becomes a big brother to his twin brother/sister. As for my home, it’s located
in Beaverton
