Scott Ramsey has been selected as Warren RECC's new Chief Executive Officer. Ramsey, formerly of Union County, Kentucky, most recently served as President and CEO of Southern Illinois Power Cooperative in Marion, Illinois. He has been involved in the power industry for nearly 30 years, at both the distribution and generation/ transmission levels.
Ramsey and his wife, Valeda, a Glasgow native, are both graduates of Western Kentucky University. In the mid-1980s, Ramsey served an engineering internship at Bowling Green Municipal Utilities. His other utility experience was gained at Oglethorpe Power Corporation in Tucker, Georgia and Richmond Power & Light in Richmond, Indiana. The Ramsey's have two daughters, Rachel and Lydia, both of whom are college students.
"My family and I are looking forward to coming home to Kentucky. We have family in Bowling Green, Glasgow, Lexington, and the surrounding area, so we are extremely excited," said Ramsey. He went on to say that he appreciates the confidence Warren RECC's Board of Directors has placed in him to lead the organization, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary.
"There were some very good candidates, but the Board is confident we made the right choice with Scott Ramsey," said Rebecca Goad, President of the Board of Directors.
Ramsey will assume the CEO position on September 26, 2013.
Warren RECC serves a growing region in south central Kentucky of approximately 150,000 people and over 60,000 member accounts in eight counties. The cooperative purchases wholesale power from the Tennessee Valley Authority and delivers it through the Warren RECC transmission and distribution system.
