Holley-Navarre Water System, Inc., a member owned water system serving the Holley-Navarre community, is excited to announce the hiring of Dr. Dallas M. Peavey, Jr. as the system’s new CEO. Dr. Peavey was chosen for the position after a thorough 10-month, nationwide search for a qualified professional to lead the utility. Dr. Peavey signed with the company Nov. 19, bringing more than 42 years of utility management experience to HNWS’s 16,000 residential and commercial customers. Dr. Peavey comes to HNWS after serving as senior executive for an
international utility company and joint venture group. In this role, Dr. Peavey led operations, development, and maintenance of utility services across multiple countries and distribution systems. In his years of working in utilities, Dr. Peavey has traveled the world while handling all aspects of the company from workforce development to business development. “I'm grateful to have the opportunity to bring my international experience and best industry
practices to fulfill the strategy and vision demanded by the Holley-Navarre Water System board of directors, and work with the Holley-Navarre Water System team of employees to provide the Holley- Navarre Water System members with ‘world class’ essential services, delivering the finest
and most efficient water supply-waste water services, at cost effective industry rates,” Dr. Peavey said. While he is no stranger to international travel, Dr. Peavey is choosing to make a career move that allows him to focus on his home life. Dr. Peavey has two adult children and a school-age daughter. He will be relocating from Lake Worth, Florida. Dr. Peavey’s official first day will be Dec. 7. "We will work together to bring the greatest value to all we do, for our valued members of
