Following the resignation of Chad Waldow, the SCPPD Board of Directors conducted a nationwide search for a new General Manager/CEO over the past months and has recently completed the selection process.  The Board is pleased to announce the hiring of Trever Turner to be the next General Manager/CEO for the Stanton County Public Power District. 

Trever began his career in the utility business at Union County Electric Cooperative in Elk Point, SD, where he started as an Apprentice Lineman.  After completing his four-year apprenticeship program, he climbed the ladder quickly, holding positions as lead lineman, crew foreman, and for the last 8 years the manager of operations. He additionally held the title and responsibility of the safety coordinator role. Trever briefly worked as an account manager for Border States Electric before accepting the position with Stanton County Public Power District. 

Trever and his wife MeagAnn have been married since September of 2011 and have two children, with their third baby due in December. The family is very excited to become a part of the Stanton community and to set their roots in the area. They enjoy spending time outdoors and are happiest when they’re all together.

Trever began his employment on October 31, 2023, and says, “I look forward to leading and working with the Stanton County Public Power District’s employee group, and to serve the great customers that make up Stanton County Public Power District with the excellence they deserve. Stanton County Public Power District is in a great position, and I look forward to continuing that trend moving forward. Whether I see you in the front office, out in the community or somewhere in SCPPD’s territory, I am excited to meet you all.”
