2021 will usher in a new era for The Upper Cumberland Electric Membership Corporation. Jennifer Brogdon is the new CEO and General Manager, effective January 4, 2021. Jennifer will be taking over for Jimmy Gregory, who has been serving as GM since 2009 and is retiring in January 2021.

“Jennifer brings more than 28 years of experience in the electric utility industry”, said Board President Morris “Moose” Tyree. “Her technical background plus her extensive leadership experience positions her well to lead us into the future.”

Before joining UCEMC, Jennifer held leadership roles at Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) in marketing, innovation, and regulatory areas. Recently, she served as TVA’s director of regulatory assurance, providing regulatory oversight of 153 local power companies that distribute TVA power. She has strong partnerships with municipal and cooperative power companies and statewide associations. TVA is the operator of the nation’s most extensive public power system and power supplier to a population of approximately 10 million people.

“UCEMC makes a real difference in the quality of life for the Upper Cumberland region,” Jennifer said. “I look forward to working with leadership and staff to provide our members with the best service possible.”

The new co-op leader is a Knoxville native but has strong local ties. She graduated from Tennessee Technological University (TTU) with a B.S. in Civil Engineering. She also completed a leadership program at Vanderbilt University. Jennifer’s two young adult children, Adam (B.S. Business 2019) and Gracie (a junior) are also TTU Golden Eagles.

Ken Holmes’s executive search team facilitated the UCEMC Board’s search for the new CEO.

Jennifer will be relocating to Carthage from her current home in Chattanooga and plans to take an active, visible role in the community.

Welcome to UCEMC, Jennifer!
