John Twitty, who will retire as general manager of City Utilities June 10, has been selected as the first executive director of the Transmission Access Policy Study Group, an electric utility and transmission advocacy organization that has member utilities in 33 states, including CU.

“John Twitty, through his long history of service to the utility industry as a leader and advocate for fairness and improvement in the transmission process, was a logical choice to help us manage TAPS to a new level,” said Thomas Heller, chairman of the TAPS board of directors, in a news release. “He’s the right person to lead this group at the right time.”

Twitty, who will take the position July 1, plans to stay in Springfield, according to Springfield News-Leader reporting.

CU will hold a public reception tomorrrow to send off Twitty, who joined the company in 1991 and was named general manager in 2002, according to a separate news release.

The reception will take place 5-6:30 p.m. in the customer lobby at the Robert Roundtree Center, 301 E. Central St.

Scott Miller, CU associate general manager of electric supply, was named the next general manager of CU at a May 12 news conference. The CU Board and the General Manager Search Committee conducted a national search, narrowing down the candidates to three. Miller will succeed Twitty on June 11.[[In-content Ad]]
