Fun fact: Tim loves to fly fish and ties his own flies. His favorite team is the Purdue Boilermakers – Boiler Up!


Tim Jarrell

Tim predicts the future. Not really, but his team uses complex data and algorithms to estimate how much electricity our members will use, while working to keep rates as low as possible.  

Fun fact: Tim won a contest for growing a 108-pound watermelon. Yes, you read that right.


Kristi Knight
VP, Internal Audit & Compliance

Things that make Kristi smile: spreadsheets, data and efficient processes. She knows the company's bylaws like the back of her hand and enjoys keeping us in check.

Fun fact: In college, Kristi was Iowa Wesleyan’s go-to DJ and rocked the student union during 80s night. 


Tim Sosebee
SVP, Business Operations
