Boone REMC names new president
The Boone REMC Board of Directors has named Dr. Brian Newton, as Boone REMC’s next president and chief executive officer.
He will begin in that capacity on Jan. 2.
“I’m grateful for the trust the board of directors has placed in me and honored to be given the opportunity to serve as the next president and CEO at Boone REMC,” Newton said. “I look forward to joining the hard working team of directors and employees that serve Boone REMC’s member-owners.”
Newton will replace Dale Geiselman, Boone REMC’s current president and CEO, when Geiselman retires in January after serving the cooperative for 23 years.
The board selected Newton following a nationwide search conducted over many months.

Newton earned a bachelor of arts degree in organizational management from Concordia University in Nebraska, a master’s in business administration from Ashland University in Ohio, and a doctoral of management from the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University in Ohio.
