FORT COLLINS, COLO. - The Platte River Power Authority Board of Directors named Jason Frisbie General Manager (GM) and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), effective August 6. He will replace Jackie Sargent, who was recently named General Manager of Austin Energy in Austin, Texas, effective August 15. Sargent and Frisbie will work together on a transition plan between now and her departure from Platte River August 5.
“As the board considered options in selecting a new GM/CEO, it quickly became obvious that the best choice was already on staff,” said Tom Roiniotis, board chair. “Jason was part of our national search four years ago and has since distinguished himself as chief operating officer (COO), serving as a key business partner with Jackie.”
Frisbie has been with the Platte River since 1982, serving in multiple roles including bulk material operator, site maintenance supervisor, bulk material supervisor, air quality/water supervisor, plant maintenance manager, and division manager-power production. He was named COO in 2010. Frisbie holds a bachelor’s in Industrial Technology from Colorado State University and a master’s in Business Administration from University of Phoenix.
