Letter From Kevin Wheeler, General Manager

The New Year is a perfect time for new beginnings, and so it is in 2016 for me and my family. My wife Karin and I are looking forward to being part of the Access Energy Cooperative family. The past couple of months have been one of anticipation and excitement as this time of transition approaches.

Bob Swindell has prepared Access Energy Cooperative to move into the future with a great deal of expertise and success, and I extend to him my best wishes as he retires and begins new endeavors. His shoes will be big to fill.

I come to Access Energy Cooperative with almost 30 years of accumulative experience in the electric utility industry and higher education. I began my career with Ameren as a lineman, continued my education and eventually achieved a BS in Business Administration and a Master’s in Adult Education. Later I initiated the lineman educational program at Linn State Technical College and made my way to Tri-County Electric Cooperative in Lancaster, Missouri. In that time I served as the Manager of Member Services/Job Training and Safety/Billing.

I look forward to meeting the members and leaders of the communities and counties we serve. Best wishes to all of you in 2016.
