Carroll EMC announces the promotion of Matt Jones to Manager of System Design, effective immediately. Under his leadership, the department has implemented the cooperative’s new, automated work order system and has expanded the GIS mapping system to maintain accurate records of inventory in the field.
“Our system design team is incredible,” said Jerome Johnston, Chief Operating Officer. “To completely transition our work order system from paper-based to digital within a year while also launching a system-wide inventory and keeping up with other day-to-day tasks is something to applaud. Matt has led his department well and has demonstrated a level of competence not reached without intention.”
Jones began his career at Carroll EMC in 2014 as a System Design Technician after earning years of construction and design experience as a contractor for several electric cooperatives and Georgia Power. He was quickly promoted to Service Coordinator and System Design Supervisor, respectively, the following two years. During his time at the cooperative, Jones has completed the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s Supervisor and Management Development Program as well as Meridian’s Medallion Certification Program.
A resident of Paulding County, Jones is invested in the community as a board member of the Paulding County Chamber of Commerce and a member of its Work Force Development and Tourism Committee. Additionally, he serves on the Paulding College and Career Academy’s Energy Pathway Advisory Board and the Paulding County School District’s Career, Technical and Agricultural Education Advisory Committee.
Jones and his wife, Tracy, live in Dallas where they are members of Westridge Church.
