Lisa Johnson named new CEO of Seminole Electric

TAMPA, Fla. -- Seminole Electric Cooperative announced today that Lisa D. Johnson has been named its new chief executive officer (CEO) and general manager.

Johnson succeeds Timothy S. Woodbury. Woodbury has been with Seminole since 1979 and served as its CEO the past six years. Woodbury will continue to advise Seminole and its member cooperative systems until his retirement in December 2013.

Johnson assumes her new post on August 1.

“Johnson’s utility expertise, leadership abilities, and progressive vision will position Seminole and its member distribution cooperatives for the future, so that we can continue providing affordable and reliable electricity to our member consumers,” said Seminole’s Board President Malcolm V. Page.

Johnson has been serving as senior vice president and chief operating officer of Old Dominion Electric Cooperative (ODEC) in Glen Allen, Va., since 2011. Johnson joined ODEC in 2006 following an 11-year tenure with Mirant Corporation and Southern Company.

Johnson holds a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering and materials science from Duke University. She serves as a board member and chair of the Cooperative Research Network and was named one of Virginia’s most “Influential Women” in 2012.

Seminole Electric Cooperative is one of the largest generation and transmission cooperatives in the country. Approximately 1.7 million people and businesses in parts of 45 Florida counties rely on Seminole’s wholesale power. Headquartered in Tampa, Fla., Seminole’s mission is to provide reliable, competitively priced, wholesale electric power to its 10 member-systems, which includes Clay Electric.
