EC7 - Procedures for local hiring and proportion of senior management hired from the local community at locations of significant operation

While the selection of staff and senior management is based on a range of considerations, it is the company’s policy to try to fill vacancies from within the organization. Leadership, knowledge, performance and diversity are some of the factors considered in making selection decisions.   

Every effort is made to promote from within the organization; however, there are instances when the uniqueness of job requirements or skills necessitate expanding outreach to areas outside of the company or our service territory. 

For the previous 12 months, two of the company executives (VP, SVP, EVP and Presidents) were selected outside of the organization, but within the local communities: Stephen Burge and Mark James.

Local is defined as the AEP service territory, which includes portions of 11 states.
