BRMEMC General Manager Jeremy Nelms to Resign in September

YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. — Blue Ridge Mountain EMC’s General Manager Jeremy Nelms announced on June 25 that he will resign his position as General Manager in September 2020.

Nelms began his career at Blue Ridge Mountain EMC in August 2016. He was hired as the seventh general manager since the inception of BRMEMC in 1938. During Nelms’ four-year tenure, the EMC has seen a growth in its Membership that now exceeds 54,000 meters, 46,791 members and 6,200 miles of electric lines.

Board of Directors President Ray Cook said, “The Board is very grateful for Jeremy’s leadership over the last four years. He and the employees have done an outstanding job serving our Membership and we know without a doubt this exceptional service will continue. Jeremy leaves the EMC in very good fiscal health and a great position for growth. We wish Jeremy and his family the best in this next phase of their lives and we sincerely thank him for his service and dedication to BRMEMC.”

Under the Board’s leadership, BRMEMC will begin a search for a new general manager later this summer.

“Having the opportunity to work alongside some of the finest co-workers I’ve ever met has been both rewarding and gratifying,” said Nelms. “I have made wonderful friendships over the last four years and I know the EMC, its Board, and employees will continue to succeed and prosper for the benefit of the Membership. I thank the Board for allowing me the opportunity to pursue and grow my career at BRMEMC over these last four years.”
