LEXINGTON, Ky. — Brittany Cox has joined the award-winning economic development team at Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives.

Cox formerly served as Senior Project Manager for the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development, working on new development and expansion projects such as Wieland’s $100 million copper recycling facility in Shelbyville and Pratt Paper’s $500 million recycled paper mill in Henderson, Ky.

“Brittany brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in recruitment, expansion and retention of companies in Kentucky,” said Rodney Hitch, Director of Economic Development. “She will be a valued member of our team.”

“I am looking forward to helping the communities served by Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives attract new jobs and investment, as well as retaining existing businesses,” Cox said.

Cox is a graduate of the University of Kentucky and has served as a mentor for students in UK’s College of Communication and Information.

The 17 electric cooperatives that makeup Kentucky Touchstone Energy Cooperatives work together to attract and retain jobs and investment for the communities they serve.

They were named to the Top 20 Elite Utilities in Economic Development by Site Selection Magazine, and winners of the 2021 Projects With A Purpose Award from the Site Selectors Guild. They are past winners of Excellence in Economic Development awards from the Southern Economic Development Council and the National Rural Economic Developers Association.
