The Minnesota Valley Electric Cooperative (MVEC) board of directors has named Marvin Denzer as interim chief executive officer of the cooperative. Denzer replaces Ryan Hentges, who accepted a position with Dakota Electric Association after six years leading MVEC.
A graduate of North Dakota State University, Denzer began his MVEC career in 1991 as an engineer. Over his 31 years at the co-op, he has served in many capacities across the organization including key account executive, vice president of energy services and, most recently, as chief operating officer and vice president of engineering and operations.
“Working for our electric cooperative for the past 31 years has given me appreciation of how great, kind-hearted MVEC team members and cooperative member-owners can partner together to accomplish forward-thinking projects while enhancing system reliability and keeping your electric rates competitive,” Denzer said. “As a servant leader, I look forward to serving in this new role while always keeping in mind what’s best for MVEC.”
