Randy Baker Appointed General Manager
Richmond Power & Light's Board of Directors hired RP&L’s Randy Baker as the new general manager after a unanimous vote on Tuesday, February 17th.
Randy came to RP&L in 1999 as an information technology consultant. He became IT Manger in 2000 and then corporate services director in 2008.
Randy graduated from Richmond High School in 1970 and received his bachelor's degree in general studies from Florida Beacon College in 1991 and then earned his master's of business administration from Anderson University in 2003. Board member Clay Miller commented, "The selling point for me was the work Randy did in presenting the (2015) budget to us. He had a clear vision and he put himself above the rest with that budget. And I'm happy we were able to bring somebody up through the organization," Miller said.
The employees would like to thank board president Phil Quinn and councilman Doug Goss for communicating to the employees prior to the scheduled board meeting.
The committee initially looked at applications from 50 candidates before narrowing it down to three.
Randy is married to Debbie and they have two children, Bryan and Sara, and three grandchildren.
