WALLA WALLA, Wash. — Lori Wyman is stepping in as Regional Business Manager for Pacific Power in Walla Walla and other southeast Washington communities as Bill Clemens, a long-time Pacific Power leader in the area, retires
For the last 5 years, Wyman has served in the same capacity in Northeast Oregon, which she will continue to support as she takes on the Walla Walla area. Wyman will begin working closely with customers and businesses of all sizes across the region with a focus on supporting each community’s energy needs and opportunities.
“I look forward to becoming involved in the unique SE Washington communities with their long histories and vibrant futures, “ said Wyman. “Working with customers and local leaders, my goal is to discover even more areas where Pacific Power’s partnership can fortify community goals and make our customers lives better.”
Pacific Power serves over 30,000 customers in SE Washington and 40,000 in Umatilla and Wallowa counties in Oregon. Wyman will be the main contact for all government, community and business organizations.
Wyman joined Pacific Power in 2016. Previously, she spent 19 years with Puget Sound Energy. She served on the King County Utility Coordination Council and played a key role in the Municipal Department, as well as other responsibilities over the years.
Clemens plans to stay in the area after retirement and remain active in the community he has made his home since 1989. Over the years, Clemens worked for Pacific Power in Portland, Roseburg, Hood River, Bend, Walla Walla, Sunnyside, and back to Walla Walla.
“Our customers and the partnerships we create to build local community prosperity are the reason we are in business,” said Scott Bolton, senior vice president for external affairs and customer solutions. “Delivering exceptional service is a team effort across our company and depends on effective communication, a close working relationship with our operations professionals, and always being in tune with our customers’ needs.
