Pioneer Electric Cooperative is pleased to announce the return of Jodi Borger as manager of communications and marketing. Borger returned to the cooperative in early November 2022 to fill the vacated position temporarily before taking on the position permanently. She previously served as Pioneer's communications coordinator from 2014-2021 and prior to that worked for Trupointe, an agricultural cooperative now known as Sunrise.
Borger brings a vast amount of experience to the job. In her new role, Borger will be responsible for overseeing external member communications including outage texting, Pioneer's local pages included in Ohio Cooperative Living magazine, annual meeting, the board election process, website management, county board education and development, marketing programs, Touchstone Energy programs, ACSI surveys, political action committee efforts, summer Energy Camp and other community outreach and education opportunities.
Borger brings many skills to this role, including achieving NRECA's Certified Cooperative Communicator (CCC) status in 2017 by demonstrating a professional level of knowledge and skill in electric cooperative communications. She completed Ohio's Electric Cooperatives' Leadership Edge program in 2019 and was elected to the national CCC board that same year, a position she held until 2021.
Her demonstrated experience, knowledge of electric cooperatives, and superior performance throughout her career make her a great addition to keep Pioneer moving forward in the increasingly challenging electricity business. Due to Jodi’s track record of hard work and success, Pioneer is confident the cooperative, its members, and fellow employees will greatly benefit, with Jodi in this role.
Jodi is a graduate of Ball State University with a Bachelor of Science in journalism and minor in business foundations. Jodi, her husband Phil, and three children reside in Tipp City.
