Childress, senior vice president of Corporate Services and the company’s chief human resources officer, has been instrumental in shaping TECO’s corporate values. He is known for his die-hard commitment to continuing education and leadership development.

“Clint’s legacy with our company is unparalleled,” said John Ramil, president and chief executive officer of TECO Energy. “His longtime leadership has been a shining example of TECO’s values and culture. He has been a devoted champion of safety and a compassionate mentor to many. We will greatly miss him.”

Childress’ duties will be split between two vice presidents:

  • Phil Barringer will become vice president of Corporate Services and chief human resources officer. In addition to his regular duties, he will be responsible for the purchasing, contract services, facilities, real estate, corporate safety, security and emergency management functions.
  • Dee Brown will become vice president of Business Strategy, Technology and Compliance and will continue to be the company’s chief ethics and compliance officer. In addition to her regular duties, she will be responsible for the information technology and telecommunications functions.

Childress began his career with Tampa Electric Co. in 1970 digging ditches as a laborer and advanced to a lineman in Energy Delivery operations. Through the years, Childress served in various leadership positions, including director of Labor Relations and director of Compensation and Benefits. Childress has a bachelor’s degree in professional management from The University of Tampa.
