President and CEO J.T. Young will resign his post as the top executive at the nation’s largest three-service public utility effective October 14.
Young is leaving Memphis to return to his native Florida where he has accepted a position at Florida Power & Light.
“J.T. has led MLGW with integrity, humility, and strength, with examples being the process which culminated recently in a plan to strengthen the system to reduce major outages from severe storms and the RFP process for our power supply. For all these reasons and many more, I’d like to thank J.T. for his service as the President of MLGW and to the citizens of Memphis. I know he and his family will do well back home in Pensacola,” Mayor Jim Strickland remarked of Young’s tenure and leadership.
Young joined MLGW in March 2018 and served as Memphis Light, Gas and Water’s 11th president.
MLGW is the largest three-service public power utility in the nation, serving more than 440,000 customers in Memphis and Shelby County.
