Greenville native named GM of Pioneer Electric

Pioneer Electric Cooperative’s Board of Trustees announced Friday that Greenville native Terry Moseley has been named executive vice president and general manager for the electric cooperative.

Moseley will replace Steve Harmon, who resigned as Pioneer’s  executive vice president and general manager in December.

“Terry’s years of experience with Pioneer Electric as an electrical engineer, along with his years serving cooperatives statewide, and his reputation in our community solidified our decision,” board president Tommy Thompson said.

Moseley most recently served as sales manager for GRESCO Utility Supply, Inc. in Dothan, where he has worked since 2003.

Moseley is no stranger to Pioneer; he started his career with the cooperative as a college student in 1977 working his way up to the position of an electrical system engineer, where he designed and supervised maintenance of the coop’s electric system.  He left the company after 20 years to work in other positions in the utility industry.

He is a 1976 Greenville High School graduate and holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Auburn University. He is married to the former Cherry Newton and the couple has two adult children, Carson and Everett.  They are all members of First Baptist Church of Greenville where Moseley has previously served as deacon.

“We feel strongly that Terry’s lifelong residence here, Christian values and leadership skills will serve the cooperative as a strong manager to tackle the energy issues facing our industry nationwide, as well as the issues facing Pioneer locally,” said Thompson.

Moseley will start with Pioneer on July 16, 2012.
