Peter Heintzelman
President and CEO

Peter’s favorite word is innovation. As the captain of our ship, he leads employees as they deliver safe and reliable power, while keeping costs low.

Fun fact: Peter is a pilot and he cheers for the Texas Longhorns.


Brett Stovern
Chief Financial Officer

Brett balances our checkbook. He keeps a close eye on our spending so we can keep our rates low.

Fun Fact: Brett has transitioned from coaching his son’s sport teams to learning about clothes and makeup (including getting toes painted) from his daughter.


Kevan Espy
SVP, Electric Operations

Kevan’s to-do list includes keeping the lights on. His team works around the clock to monitor and maintain our electric system. He mobilizes our crews when storms roll through.  

Fun fact: Kevan was an Appalachian State fan long before they were America’s favorite underdog.


Mark Goddard
Interim Head, Marketing & Corporate Communications

Newsletters, emails and community events make Mark happy. His team tells members everything they need to know about their electric service. They also focus on education and community improvement efforts.  

Fun fact: Legend has it that Mark once hit a 165-yard hole-in-one slightly uphill. 


Tim Jarell
VP, Power Supply & Planning

Tim predicts the future. Not really, but his team uses complex data and algorithms to estimate how much electricity our members will use, while working to keep rates as low as possible.  

Fun fact: Tim won a contest for growing a 108-pound watermelon. Yes, you read that right.


Kristi Knight
VP, Internal Audit & Compliance

Things that make Kristi smile: spreadsheets, data and efficient processes. She knows the company's bylaws like the back of her hand and enjoys keeping us in check.

Fun fact: In college, Kristi was Iowa Wesleyan’s go-to DJ and rocked the student union during 80s night. 


Tim Sosebee
SVP, Business Operations

Tim makes sure our internal operation is running smoothly. He keeps our member care team, all of our technology and the Cobb EMC campus in tip top shape.  

Fun fact: Tim plays the mandolin and enjoys bluegrass music. Oh yeah, Roll Tide! 


Ron Younker
VP, Human Resources

Ron keeps our employee handbook in his back pocket. He loves Cobb EMC employees and his number one goal is to make sure we have the resources we need to excel inside and outside the company. 

Fun fact: Ron was selected as the first-ever non-music degree Drum Major for the UGA Redcoat Marching Band.
