Three Kentucky Power managing directors have been named vice presidents of the company.

Everett Phillips, who oversees Distribution and Region Operations; Cindy Wiseman, who oversees External Affairs, Economic Development, Customer Service and Corporate Communications; and Ranie Wohnhas, who oversees Regulatory and Finance, are now vice presidents.

Brett Mattison, president and chief operating officer for Kentucky Power, announced the job title changes on Thursday. The changes are part of the company’s continuing efforts to position Kentucky Power for the future to improve efficiencies and operations, maximize business acumen, plan for growth and optimize the customer experience.

“Our industry is changing rapidly and Kentucky Power and all of AEP must adapt and change with it,” said Brett Mattison, president and chief operating officer of Kentucky Power. “We want to make sure we are positioning ourselves to be in the best place possible to serve our customers and grow the company.”

This organizational change better mirrors the leadership structure of other operating companies within the AEP family and will aid in elevating the company’s operations.

“We are preparing ourselves to be more proactive as we work to enhance Kentucky Power,” Mattison said.

Phillips started with AEP in 1985 as a distribution engineer in Huntington, West Virginia, for Appalachian Power. In 1994, he moved to Clintwood, Virginia, as the area distribution supervisor. In 1998, he moved to Pikeville, Kentucky as the distribution line superintendent overseeing the operations for Hazard and Pikeville districts of Kentucky Power.  In 2004, he moved to Ashland to head up the distribution operations for Kentucky Power and has been leading the distribution group since.

Wiseman started with AEP in 2008 in corporate communications at Appalachian Power in Charleston, West Virginia, and later was named as an external affairs manager for the company. In 2018, she joined Kentucky Power as managing director of External Affairs and Customer Service. She also serves on the AEP Customer Experience board.

During his 40 years of service, Wohnhas has worked at three operating companies and the AEP Service Corporation in various customer service, accounting and regulatory functions.

He is responsible for all company regulatory filings with the Kentucky Public Service Commission and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, as well as all of Kentucky Power’s financial plans and financial operating results.

    Retirees would rather hear about obituaries and retirements.
