Scheve Promoted to Manager
Victory Electric announces the promotion of Jarod Scheve. In recent months, Victory Electric's engineering department has undergone several staff changes, including a retirement, resulting in position vacancies.
Scheve was promoted to manager of substation technology. He has been in the substation department since 2014 but joined Victory Electric in 2002.
"I started my time with Victory Electric as a warehouse clerk," Scheve said. "I tried being a lineman for a couple of years before deciding it wasn't for me. I went back to the warehouse before moving to substations in 2014.
"Substations are the beginning of our member's electricity as far as Victory Electric is concerned," Scheve continued. "The power comes from a generation and transmission (G&T) power plant and enters a substation. The substations transform voltage so it can be distributed across Victory Electric lines."
Victory Electric has 53 substations across it's service territory.
"One of my primary jobs is to keep the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system running properly and program breakers," Scheve said. "Each day is different. When I come to work,I could have a plan and within five minutes it can change; that's what I like most about my job."
Rob Henry, vice president of engineering says, "Scheve's experience with SCADA will serve the members well. I know he will do a great job. I have no doubts about his ability to continue doing great work for the substation department."
"The promotion is exciting. There is a lot to learn and a lot I haven't experienced yet," Scheve said. "It's those things that make me both nervous and exicted."
Victory Electric knows Jarod will do a great job. Help us in congratulations Jarod on his promotion.
