Pike Announces Leadership Transition

Pike Electric Corporation (NYSE: PIKE), one of the nation’s largest providers of energy solutions, today announced that John Thompson, PE, will assume the role of President of Pike Energy Solutions. Mr. Thompson will also continue as President UC Synergetic, which was acquired by Pike Electric Corporation in July. Mr. Thompson joined UC Synergetic in 2002 and served as the company’s Senior Vice President Energy Delivery. He was instrumental in the development of new capabilities, including engineering consulting and storm response. Mr. Thompson has held leadership positions in the distribution, transmission and substation divisions at both investor-owned and cooperative utilities, including South Carolina Electric & Gas, New Horizon Electric Cooperative and Progress Energy. Mr. Thompson graduated with a bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering from the Citadel and is a registered Professional Engineer.

J. Eric Pike, Chairman and CEO said, “This is our first move to integrate Pike Energy Solutions and UC Synergetic, our two engineering entities. John brings strong leadership skills and deep knowledge of our industry and customers. I am confident John will have an immediate positive impact on both organizations as we continue to grow our planning, siting, engineering and design services.”

Mr. Pike continued, “John will replace Jim Hicks as PES’s President who is leaving to pursue other opportunities. Jim’s leadership has been instrumental in growing our power engineering business and we appreciate all he has done for the Company.”
