Tom Gaffigan, currently the General Manager at Maquoketa Municipal Electric Utility, has been hired as the new GM at Indianola Municipal Utilities (IMU).
Gaffigan, who also led Harlan Municipal Utilities for several years as CEO, will begin his new duties on October 23rd. “I’ve really enjoyed my time here in Maquoketa. We have a tremendous and dedicated team and I will miss them all,” says Gaffigan. “I’m looking forward to being part of the Indianola Municipal Utility team and the Indianola community. With the construction of a new fiber-to-the-home network and launch of the new utility, it will be a challenging yet exciting time.”
Gaffigan will arrive at IMU just weeks after construction began on an extension of the utilities' fiber-to-the-home network that will provide complete coverage of the community by the end of 2018. Previous IMU GM Rob Stangel left in May to pursue a new career in the private sector.
IAMU Executive Director Troy DeJoode led the job search efforts on behalf of the IMU Board of Trustees.
