newly formed management team led by Randy Ethridge who continues to lead the co-op as CEO and Executive Vice-President today. Ethridge refl ected on Tilley’s


contributions over the years during a recent retirement reception held at the cooperative on Tilley’s behalf. “Carlton and I have seen much progress together. He is responsible for much of our fi nancial strength and growth. From automating data processing in the 1980s to PEC’s latest online billing and web solutions, Carlton has been a champion for excellence and streamlining our business systems. Carlton was the driving force in PEC’s Structured Lease Transaction that netted our cooperative over eleven million dollars. His ability to close on this fi nancial transaction demonstrates his dedication,” Ethridge said. “As the project manager for the design and construction of PEC’s 23,000 sq. ft. headquarters facility completed in 2006, Carlton leaves a co-op home


that PEC’s members and employees will enjoy for years to come. Carlton’s commitment to member service and the cooperative will be missed,” he added. 1013300700 Tilley has seen PEC grow to


a utility that provides power to over 21,000 electric locations with assets in excess of $200 million. The cooperative serves more than 4,500 miles of distribution and transmission lines. Tilley’s infl uence and civic


contributions to the Ada area and Pontotoc County have been signifi cant. He currently serves on the Mercy Ada Board of Directors and the Valley View Health and Wellness Foundation. From 1998 to 2013 Tilley served on and was a past president for the Valley View Regional Hospital board of directors. He was also a past president of the Ada Chamber of Commerce, and the Byng Excellence in Education Foundation, Byng Baseball Booster club and Pontotoc Rural Water


District #2. He also was a member of the Ada Jaycees, State Chairman for the OK Jaycees Shooters’ Education Program, Ada Kiwanis Club, assisted with the Ada Legion Baseball Program for 5+ years, and was a founding member of the organization that worked toward the formation of the Pontotoc Technology Center. When asked how he will spend


retirement, Tilley is looking forward to spending time with his immediate family, including his wife Mary of 40 years, two sons, Brandon (wife Lindsey) and Steve (wife Jessica), grandkids Caris, Liam, Laken and their fourth grandchild due to arrive soon. There’s sure to be some extra time on the farm for the veteran co- op employee, along with much more time to spend hunting his next great trophy deer or elk. 580700701 His successor is local Ada Certifi ed
