The City of Monroe, Georgia is conducting a national search for an innovative and committed electric utility professional to serve as the next Director of Electric Services. Under administrative direction from the City Administrator, the Director provides general management of the City's electric department and has oversight of the Department.

Today, MES continues to provide reliable and affordable electric service to the residents and businesses of Monroe, while developing the flexibility and innovation to respond to the changing utility marketplace.

Typical experience would include five years of relevant experience in increasingly responsible engineering, finance, or management positions in the electric utility industry with direct supervisory or managerial experience.
