Avista Corp. (Spokane, WA) announced that Senior Vice President Malyn Malquist will assume responsibility for the treasury function in addition to his role as Chief Financial Officer. Vice President and Treasurer David Brukardt will be leaving Avista later in the quarter, after helping to assure a smooth transition. The move combines the role of CFO and treasurer and eliminates one executive officer position.

"Dave has been an extremely valuable member of our company during financially challenging times," said Avista Board Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Gary Ely. "He is well-respected for his corporate communication and investor relations expertise within our company and within our industry. His contributions to our success have been substantial."
