Since 1947 when Arab Electric Cooperative was incorporated, there have been four General Manager’s at the helm.
Earl Holloway from July 1947 to September1963;
H.E. “Gene” Craft from November 1963 to August 1985;
Joe Van Bunch from August 1986 to January 2018;
Scott Spence from January 2018 to August 2019.
AEC has been without a General Manager since Spence resigned to take a similar position in Tennessee.
The Board of Trustees, as has been discussed, is in the process of a nationwide search for a new General Manager. That is expected to be completed with a new General Manager in place sometime in February.
However, AEC members should not worry – AEC is in good hands.
