Headshot_Strange_b_02I came to the Town of Smyrna in March of 2014 from east Tennessee to serve Smyrna as Director of Utilities. My foremost responsibility is being a leader for all facets of the utilities organization. I have (28) twenty-eight years’ experience in the utilities industry and have earned degrees in both Business Administration and Electrical Engineering Technology.  I have accomplished and still aspire to accomplish many things.  Areas of importance to me include, but are not limited to, customer service relations, employee efficiency and moral, organizational development and strategic vision for the company’s future, operational efficiency, fiscal management and process and procedure development.

My passions in life are God, my wife and my children.  I enjoy sports, hunting and fishing.  I have heard rumors that I am being considered for the cul-de-sac hall of fame for football, basketball and bicycle tricks.  I also enjoy practicing being an SEC color commentator for Tennessee football.  I have enjoyed the move to middle Tennessee and the opportunities that it presents for me and my family.
As I look back over my career, the most important thing that stands out is the people.  It is easy sometimes to become so focused on policies, procedures and rates that you lose sight of what matters most and that is serving the people in the community to the best of your ability.
