Move takes place Jan. 1, 2017
FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 13, 2016) — Kentucky Power, which provides electrical service to about 169,000 customers in 20 Eastern Kentucky counties, is moving its headquarters from Frankfort to Ashland, effective Jan. 1, 2017, the company announced today. Headquarters previously were moved from Ashland to Frankfort.
Employees and support staff are expected to move to the new office, including the president and chief operating officer, managing director of regulatory and finance, managers for external affairs and corporate communications, and an executive assistant. Members of Kentucky Power’s regulatory group will remain in Frankfort. Kentucky Power had moved its state headquarters to Frankfort to be closer to government operations and will continue to maintain a regulatory presence in the state capital.
“This move is important for Kentucky Power and the communities we serve in Eastern Kentucky,” said Kentucky Power President and COO Greg Pauley. “We take great pride in working with and supporting the communities in which we operate, and believe there is strong benefit for us as a company and for the customers we serve to have our state headquarters located within the service territory.”
