Tipmont’s board of directors held its regular board meeting via teleconference on Tuesday, June 23. All directors were present.
Also attending were CEO Ron Holcomb and Attorney Jeff Helmerick. The year-to-date electric margin was $523,904. The cooperative currently has an equity rate of 35.8%, and 246 new services have been installed this year. The next regular meeting of the board is Tuesday, Aug. 25.
Rob Ford is Tipmont and Wintek's communication director, a role he's held since 2015.
Rob has a bachelor's and a master's in Communication from Purdue University. He lives in West Lafayette with his wife and three children and has a life-sized Yoda statue in his office. Away from the office, you’ll find Rob working on his golf swing, jump shot, or hope for a Purdue basketball national title – all futile endeavors.
