BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Goldfield Corporation has announced the election of John W. Davis III, 39, as president and chief executive officer of Southeast Power Corporation, its electrical construction subsidiary, effective Jan. 1.
Through Southeast Power, Goldfield, headquartered in Melbourne, is a leading provider of construction services to electric utilities, with operations primarily in the southeastern, mid-Atlantic, and western regions of the United States.
Davis, a Melbourne resident, joined Southeast Power in 2009 as vice president in its newly organized foundation construction operations and, since 2011, has been chief operating officer of Southeast Power.
He succeeds Robert L. Jones, who is retiring as President of Southeast Power at years-end after 46 years of service.
Goldfield also announced the election of Steven Bray, 49, and Jason Johnston, 43, as vice presidents at Southeast Power.
Bray, who joined Southeast Power earlier this year, has 30 years of experience in the electrical services industry, with expertise in transmission, distribution, substation and utility-scale solar installations. Johnston joined Southeast Power in 2009 and has had over 25 years’ experience in all phases of foundation construction.
Goldfield president John H. Sottile was pleased to have Davis serve as Southeast Power’s new president.
“The election of Mr. Davis and the other officers recognize the leadership of this team in helping to grow the geographic footprint of Southeast Power’s electrical construction operations in strong market areas,” Sottile said. “We have expanded westward into Texas from our traditional Florida/southeastern base and plan to strengthen our mid-Atlantic operations.”
Goldfield is a leading provider of electrical construction and maintenance services in the energy infrastructure industry primarily in the southeastern, mid-Atlantic, and western regions of the United States.
The company specializes in installing and maintaining electrical transmission lines for a wide range of electric utilities. Goldfield also is involved, to a much lesser extent, in real estate development activities on Florida’s east coast.
