Assistant general manager position created at Public Utility District
The Truckee-Donner Public Utility District has been busy lately – as the community grows, so does the district’s customer base and the services it offers.
A new assistant general manager position has been created to help general manager Peter Holzmeister tackle the district’s growing responsibilities.
TDPUD Power Supply Engineer Steve Hollabaugh was promoted to be the district’s new assistant general manager last month.
“There’s just so much going on here. It’s grown to the point where I need some help,” Holzmeister said.
Hollabaugh will retain his duties as power supply engineer as well as help Holzmeister with budget preparations, negotiations with new employee contracts, special day-to-day projects as they come in and making sure the district’s electronics and computer systems are working. He is currently working on implementing a new GIS system for the district.
“I’m always interested in learning new things. This will be a way for me to learn the management side of things as well,” Hollabaugh said.
Hollabaugh has worked for the district for six and a half years, coming from Pacific Gas and Electric where he worked in various transmission distribution positions for just under 10 years.
Hollabaugh started with the district as an electronic distribution engineer for the electric superintendent and worked on getting power contracts for Holzmeister. It got to be where there wasn’t enough of him to go around, so the power supply engineer position was created for Hollabaugh.
Hollabaugh holds a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering from Cal Poly.
