Gordon Gillette, the president and CEO of Tampa Electric Company, will retire Nov. 30 and be replaced by an executive from the utility’s parent company, Emera Inc.
Gillette, who has been with TECO for 36 years, appeared at a state Public Service Commission meeting Monday as regulators considered a rate settlement.
“I see a bright future for Tampa Electric Company and our customers,” Gillette said.
Gillette will be replaced by Nancy Tower, who has served as chief development officer for Emera, a Canadian firm that finished an acquisition of Tampa Electric last year.
