The Memphis Business Journal names President McGowen one of its 2023 “Power 100”

Congratulations to MLGW President and CEO Doug McGowen. The Memphis Business Journal named President McGowen one of its 2023 “Power 100.”

As a member of the US Navy, President Doug McGowen served as the Commanding Officer of a strike fighter squadron in combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was also COO of a Carrier Air Wing, and CO of Naval Support Activity Mid-South in Millington.

After retiring from the Navy, Doug headed the Innovation Delivery Team under Mayor A.C. Wharton. Under Mayor Jim Strickland, Doug served as the Chief Operating Officer for the City of Memphis. He also led the Memphis and Shelby County COVID-19 Task Force.

Doug replaced President and CEO J.T. Young of Memphis Light, Gas and Water in December 2022 and was quickly put to the test. President McGowen helped the Division weather a winter storm, sub-zero temperatures, a boil water advisory and the first rolling blackouts in MLGW history.
