PRINCE GEORGE — The Prince George Electric Cooperative (PGEC) Board of Directors has selected Casey Logan as the next president and CEO of Prince George Electric Cooperative. He will succeed Mike Malandro, the current president and CEO, who will depart to lead Choptank Electric Cooperative as president and CEO on April 1.
In the summer of 2015, Logan joined Prince George Electric Cooperative as vice president of Engineering. He has played an intricate role in managing the innovation and upgrades of PGEC’s electrical system while also serving as vice president of Operations of PGEC Enterprises LLC, the fiber to the home broadband service “Ruralband”. As vice president of Engineering, Logan identified a true need in the community and with Public Private Partnerships transformed an idea of bringing broadband access to the region; into filling the void of access to broadband in a remote region with little or no opportunity for high speed internet.
Logan has worked closely with the Board of Directors in setting the strategic direction and long-range plans for the cooperative to include the broadband initiative and other automation projects within the organization.
“Casey has demonstrated leadership time and time again throughout his tenure with PGEC. He has been a key player on the executive team since 2015 and I am pleased Casey has accepted the position as president and CEO for the Cooperative. Under his leadership we will continue to be a member focused Cooperative with excellence at the forefront of everything we do,” stated Paul Brown, chairman of PGEC.
“This is an exciting time for Prince George Electric Cooperative with many new projects and initiatives already underway. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead the organization and look forward to serving our membership with the world-class service they have come to expect from our Co-op,” Logan said.
Logan graduated from the University of South Carolina with a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering in 2002. He is a professional engineer licensed in Virginia and South Carolina.
