Novick returns as interim CEO

As of Monday, June 22, Sandy Novick assumed the role of Kenergy’s interim CEO.

Novick retired from Kenergy in 2012 after working five years as the electric co-op’s CEO.

His leadership guided Kenergy through Kentucky’s worst natural disaster – the Ice Storm of 2009. The storm delivered a devastating blow to the co-op’s service area, causing nearly $34 million in damage to Kenergy’s infrastructure.

Novick will serve as interim while Kenergy’s board conducts a national search for a permanent CEO to replace Greg Starheim.

Starheim announced his resignation on May 1. He has accepted a job as a senior vice president for industry development and the electric cooperative network at the National Rural Utilities Cooperative Finance Corp.

Kenergy’s board has contracted with Mycoff, Fry & Prouse LLC of Conifer, Colo., to assist in the search for Starheim’s replacement.

The board expects a new CEO to be in place by early October.
