PEC names new CEO

The Pedernales Electric Cooperative (PEC) has named R.B Sloan as its new CEO. Sloan begins March 6, leaving his current job as director of utilities in Danville, VA.  He also ran the city-owned electric company for Vero Beach, Fla.

PEC, the nation’s oldest and largest co-op has been plagued by scandal and management upheaval over the past few years. Sloan will come to Pedernales just three months after longtime General Manager Bennie Fuelberg was found guilty of a money-laundering scheme.
