REC has named Lee Brock as Principal Engineering Manager. In this critical new role, Brock will lead and coordinate the engineering, design and construction efforts for REC’s large-scale power projects.
Brock will focus on response and service to new members in the large commercial and industrial space. While pre-planning, engineering and construction are key responsibilities, Brock and her team will also work closely with REC’s Economic Development team to ensure consistent response and processes necessary for a smooth transition from project concept to completion.
“With Ms. Brock's transition into this new role supporting REC’s service projects, we have a winning team to support economic growth in the communities we serve, maintain member focus from initial application through project completion, and ensuring grid health and reliability,” said John Arp, REC’s Chief Engineering & Grid Operations Officer.
Previously, Brock served as REC’s Managing Director – Engineering and Power Supply, where her key responsibilities included providing leadership and oversight of the electrical system planning, engineering, and technical services, ensuring the successful implementation of the Cooperative's strategic plan while carrying out REC’s mission of serving members and communities by providing safe, affordable, and reliable electric service.
Brock holds a Bachelor of Engineering in electrical engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology and is a licensed Professional Engineer in both Virginia and New Jersey. She brings 43 years of experience in the electric utility industry with her. Prior to coming to REC in 1995, she worked 15 years for Atlantic City Electric Company in New Jersey as an electrical engineer in the Bulk Power Planning, Distribution Planning and Technical Services departments. In her time in the utility industry, Brock has frequently contributed to and participated in teams dedicated to improving service, reliability, and safety of the Cooperative, its members, and employees.
Brock is a member of Hope Presbyterian Church, serving on the Praise Team, and supports a variety of community service organizations. She lives in Spotsylvania County with her husband, Greg, and together they have two daughters, Andrea and Kirsten, and one dog, Jersey Girl.
