TXU Corp. announced Monday that Executive Vice President and general counsel Eric H. Peterson is leaving to “pursue other opportunities as the company transitions to the third, growth-focused phase of its restructuring program.” Peterson created the GC position and the legal department at Dallas-based TXU four years ago.

David Poole, who now serves as an associate general counsel and senior vice president of litigation and employment, will become general counsel and executive vice president of legal at TXU.
