We aren't surprised one bit, but we want to offer a huge shoutout and congratulations to our esteemed Board Secretary, Julio J. Torrado on his most recent accolade as ecent member of the year! 👏👏 His commitment to his profession and community is unsurpassed. Thank you, Julio, for all that you do for Wesley House! ❤KEYS' TORRADO RECOGNIZED AS FLORIDA MUNICIPAL ELECTRIC ASSOCIATION MEMBER OF THE YEAR

Last week, Julio J. Torrado, Director of Human Resources & Communications for Keys Energy Services (KEYS), was recognized by the Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) as its Member of the Year at the organization’s annual banquet.

The Member of the Year award is given to an individual or group within a FMEA member utility who exemplifies extraordinary service and dedication to FMEA and Florida public power.

“Julio is always ready to serve and stepped into an important role for us when needed. He not only shines for going above and beyond in a most difficult year, but for his ongoing commitment to the advancement of public power in Florida,” said Amy Zubaly, FMEA Executive Director. “We are so thankful to have public power champions like Julio on our side and are pleased to recognize him as the 2021 Member of the Year.”

Torrado is currently the chair of the FMEA Florida Public Power Communicators Committee and a founding member of FMEA’s Diversity in Florida Public Power interest group. He is active with the American Public Power Association, having served on the national association’s Public Communications Committee, Human Resources Committee and Energy Services Committee. He has also represented public power at various local, state and national conferences.

“There are no finer people than my Florida public power colleagues and it is a tremendous honor to be selected among them as the FMEA Member of the Year,” said Torrado. “In addition to serving the customers of KEYS, it has been a great privilege to serve other public power communities through FMEA.”

Torrado becomes the third individual from KEYS to earn this honor since the Member of the Year was first awarded in 1980. Former General Manager & CEO and Utility Board Chair Bobby Padron received the honor in 1998, and current General Manager & CEO Lynne Tejeda was so honored in 2017.

FMEA is the statewide trade association representing Florida’s public power utilities. The association actively represents and advocates for member cities’ interests on a wide variety of state and federal issues, provides education and training for members and serves as a clearinghouse for industry news and information.

Municipal electric utilities provide affordable, reliable electric service, and have been doing so for more than a century. As community-owned and locally managed organizations, these utilities are focused on serving local needs and interests while reinvesting back into the communities they serve.

The Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) represents the unified interests of 33 public power communities across the state, which provide electricity to more than 3 million of Florida’s residential and business consumers.
