Seminole CEO, Lisa Johnson, Named April’s “Champions in Energy” Honoree

Seminole Electric Cooperative (Seminole) CEO and General Manager Lisa Johnson was named April’s “Champions in Energy” honoree by Florida’s Women in Energy Leadership Forum.

The Forum’s Champions in Energy monthly series recognizes leaders within the energy industry, both men and women, who enthusiastically support and promote a purposeful inclusion of thought diversity in their respective organizations. The selected energy leader provides insight into industry trends, challenges, and innovations while sharing stories of their personal and professional advancement.

“The beauty of our industry is that… we engage and provide opportunities for people with diverse backgrounds, educational achievements, perspectives, and experiences,” says Johnson in her interview with the Forum. “While we keenly focus on the day-to-day business requirements, we are also looking ahead, planning, and readying our businesses to implement strategies for the future.”

Johnson follows previous 2019 honorees Jeff Householder, President and CEO of Chesapeake Utilities Corporation, Paula Glover, President and CEO of the American Association of Blacks in Energy (AABE), and Catherine Stempien, State President of Duke Energy Florida.
