Goodbye to Fluvanna County
I wanted to take a moment to let you know that I left my position as the plant manager at the Tenaska Virginia Generating Station Oct. 23, 2017. I have started a new position as the plant manager for the Tenaska Westmoreland Generating Station in Westmoreland County, Penn.

I have enjoyed my tenure here, and I appreciate having had the opportunity to work with you. Thank you for the support, guidance, and encouragement you have provided me during my time at Tenaska Virginia since 2003.
Even though I will miss my colleagues and Tenaska Virginia, I am looking forward to this new challenge in building a new team for this  power plant in Pennsylvania and to starting a new phase of my career.

I am now at the end of my journey here at Tenaska Virginia, but not at the end of our journey together. Thanks for the opportunity to work together and for the memories I will be taking with me. I will mention only a few organizations that I had the pleasure of helping:

  • Peaceful Passings;
  • Green Dogs Unleashed;
  • Sheriff’s department;
  • Fluvanna County Schools CTE and STEM programs;
  • Fluvanna County Rotary Club;
  • Fluvanna County Social Services;
  • Hundreds of visitors to the plant; and
  • Habit for Humanity.

I would say good luck, but I do not believe it is appropriate here since luck does not play a role in Tenaska Virginia. Good people plus good vision plus good execution will decide your bright future ahead.
Therefore, before I ride out, I leave you all with this quote: “I’ve heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason…by bringing something, we must learn. We are led to those who help us grow and, in return, we help them grow.”

This has never been truer for me.

Please keep in touch: I can be reached at my email address This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . My daughter and her family live at the Lake.
Thanks again for everything. I wish you all the best.
