AMP's Gerken honored by American Public Power Association

SEATTLE, Wash. 7/10/12 (PennWell) -- Marc S. Gerken, president and chief executive officer of American Municipal Power in Ohio, has been awarded the Alex Radin Distinguished Service Award by the American Public Power Association.

The American Public Power Association (APPA) says the award is the highest honor granted by the organization and was given in recognition of Gerken's "exceptional leadership and dedication to public power."

Gerken was named CEO of what was then called American Municipal Power-Ohio in 2000, having served as the company's vice president of business operations since joining the company in 1998.

Since Gerken assumed the role of CEO, AMP-Ohio grew from a single-state agency to one with members in seven states, dropping "Ohio" from its name in 2009 to reflect a broader reach.

Gerken has also served on the APPA board of directors and was chairman in 2009-2010.

American Municipal Power is currently developing four hydroelectric projects on the Ohio River that will eventually provide more than 300 MW of generating capacity for a majority of its 129 members: the 84-MW Cannelton, 72-MW Smithland, 35-MW Willow Island and 105-MW Captain Anthony Meldahl.

AMP's 42-MW Belleville hydropower plant has been online since April 1999.
