MLGW president resigns, accepts new position with Florida utility company

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — MLGW President J.T. Young will resign his post as the company’s top executive on Oct. 14.

Young is leaving Memphis to return to his native Florida where he has accepted a position at Florida Power & Light, according to a release from MLGW.

“J.T. has led MLGW with integrity, humility, and strength, with examples being the process which culminated recently in a plan to strengthen the system to reduce major outages from severe storms and the RFP process for our power supply. For all these reasons and many more, I’d like to thank J.T. for his service as the President of MLGW and to the citizens of Memphis. I know he and his family will do well back home in Pensacola,” Mayor Jim Strickland said.

Young joined MLGW in March 2018 and served as MLGW’s 11th president.
