Memphis Business Journal names MLGW President Doug McGowen one of its Power 100
February 17, 2023
Congratulations to MLGW President and CEO Doug McGowen. The Memphis Business Journal named President McGowen one of its 2023 “Power 100.”

As a member of the US Navy, President McGowen served as the Commanding Officer of a strike fighter squadron in combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was also COO of a Carrier Air Wing, and CO of Naval Support Activity Mid-South in Millington. After retiring from the Navy, President McGowen headed the Innovation Delivery Team under Mayor A.C. Wharton.

Under Mayor Jim Strickland, President McGowen served as the Chief Operating Officer for the City of Memphis. He also led the Memphis and Shelby County COVID-19 Task Force.

President McGowen replaced President and CEO J.T. Young of Memphis Light, Gas and Water in December 2022 and was quickly put to the test. Within his first few weeks as MLGW's President, he helped the Division weather a winter storm, sub-zero temperatures, a boil water advisory and the first rolling blackouts in MLGW history.
