Loehlein is very familiar with the cooperative. He spent three summers as an intern with Connexus Energy while attending Iowa State University. Upon graduation, he joined the Connexus engineering group full-time. For the past 15 years, Loehlein held various positions within the Engineering and System Operations groups.

Loehlein is looking forward to building on Connexus’ tradition of operational excellence. “We’re at a time of great opportunity. With new technology, we’re able to improve the reliability of our distribution system and deliver a better member experience. And while that is exciting, the most important thing to me is that our employees go home safe every day.”
