Basin Electric’s board of directors announced today their selection of Todd Brickhouse as the chief executive officer and general manager of the cooperative effective immediately. Since July 2023, Brickhouse has held the position on an interim basis.

Basin Electric board president Wayne Peltier said the action is a reflection of Brickhouse’s record as interim CEO and general manager and his previous service as the cooperative’s senior vice president and chief financial officer. “The Board has worked closely with Todd Brickhouse during his tenure at Basin Electric and believes he has the skills, strategic vision, work ethic, and integrity to lead the organization,” said Peltier.

“I thank the board of directors for their confidence and support, and I look forward to working closely with them and our members as we pursue Basin Electric’s mission of providing reliable and affordable power, products, and services to sustain the quality of life for our member-owners across rural America,” said Brickhouse.

Brickhouse joined Basin Electric in June 2022 as its senior vice president and CFO after 21 years at Old Dominion Electric Cooperative (ODEC) in Glen Allen, Virginia. Prior to his career at ODEC, Brickhouse was employed in the financial services industry and held positions in the areas of securities trading, investment management, and investment banking. He is a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics and business.
