A New Journey Begins

All News

I am honored and thrilled to be joining Central Texas Electric Cooperative in my role as CEO. As I start this new journey with you, I would like to introduce myself to my new cooperative family members.

I am originally from the Rio Grande Valley, where my wife, Julie, and I have raised our three sons while being active in serving the local community. I grew up in a small rural community, which has helped me understand and appreciate how important services like ours are to our members. The last few years have reinforced how vital safe, affordable and reliable electricity is to all of us.

Professionally, I have served in several leadership positions at Magic Valley Electric Cooperative over a 15-year career. For the past eight years, I held the position of Western Division Manager. In that role, I was a member of the executive team in charge of member services, engineering, operations, metering and call center functions, as well as special projects, for the western portion of MVEC’s service territory.

Now, I look forward to the opportunity at Central Texas EC to work with our outstanding employees to continue to add value to those we serve in these rapidly changing times in the electric industry. We will continue to strive to provide you with the best service at the lowest available cost.

One of the things I value the most about our cooperative is the history of how it all began. I enjoy being part of a company that, through a grassroots effort, saw an opportunity to enrich people’s lives by providing them with electric service, even though it didn’t make economic sense. It’s an effort I firmly believe in and am excited to be part of.

Everyone I have met has been extremely kind and warm in welcoming me to the Hill Country, and I appreciate it very much. I also want to thank the CTEC Board of Directors for allowing me the opportunity to serve you in this capacity. I look forward to the great things I believe we will accomplish together.
