The Kenergy Board of Directors has named Timothy Lindahl as its next President and CEO.
Lindahl succeeds Jeff Hohn who has been President and CEO at the cooperative since 2015. Hohn will be retiring in March. Lindahl will begin his new role on March 13th.
“Tim has more than 28 years of experience in executive management in the agricultural, information technology and energy industries, and for more than 15 years has worked at rural electric cooperatives,” said Billy Reid, Kenergy Board Chairman. “He also served on the board of directors at a rural electric cooperative for a year. He believes wholeheartedly in this business model and understands the important relationship between a cooperative and its member-owners. The Kenergy board is confident in Tim’s experience and leadership abilities.”
In addition to his time spent with rural electric cooperatives, Lindahl was a co-founder and led a technology group dedicated to bringing technology and telecommunications to rural areas from 1995-2005.
Lindahl holds a B.A. in Business Administration Management from Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska. He completed the National Rural Electric Association’s Management Internship Program at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin in 2007.
“I am grateful for the Kenergy board’s leadership in this process and their confidence in me to lead Kenergy forward,” Lindahl said. “I am excited to serve the Kenergy membership, the board, and the co-op team while leading us in providing the most critical services that are core to our modern existence.”
Lindahl and his wife, Sarah have been married for 28 years. They have four children and they said they are looking forward to joining the communities Kenergy serves. Kenergy serves 14 counties, including Henderson, Union and Webster counties.
