Duke Energy Appoints Manager In Newly-Aligned West Central District

Duke Energy has appointed Steve Bahr as district manager over the newly-aligned west central Indiana district, which now includes Hendricks, Johnson, Morgan and Owen counties.

In Johnson County, Bahr replaces Cathy Wenning, who now serves as the company’s east district manager. In Owen County, Bahr replaces Pam Chapman, who continues as district manager in the newlyaligned south central district.

“The district manager’s job is to serve as a liaison between the local community and Duke Energy,” Bahr said. “As we continue our company’s tradition of community service and support, I look forward to developing the long-term relationships with community leaders that lead to mutual success.”

Bahr joined Duke Energy in 1987 and has worked in district operations, account management, customer service, community relations and economic development.

He earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration from Indiana State University. He and his wife, JoLynn, have been Hendricks County residents for many years and have one daughter.

Duke Energy Indiana’s operations provide approximately 6,900 megawatts of owned electric capacity to approximately 790,000 customers, making it the state’s largest electric supplier. “A Century of Service and Innovation” is the Indiana operating company’s year-long celebration of 100 years of service as of September 5, 2012. The celebration is an opportunity to reflect on the Indiana company’s history, its successes, and ways to strengthen the long-standing partnership among its employees, its customers and the communities it serves.
