Bret Carroll was named CEO of Conway Corp in 2017, just the sixth person to hold the title in the company’s more than 90-year history. He started at Conway Corp in 1998 as the company’s chief financial officer.
Since taking over the leadership role at the public utility, Carroll has been busy. For the Arkansas Municipal Power Association, he established the accounting, finance and customer service committee focusing on best practices; led implementation of a defined contribution plan to supplement the pension plan at Conway Corp; and guided the company to execution of a solar power purchase agreement for a 132 MW (dc) of renewable energy that’s expected to provide roughly 23 percent of Conway Corp’s electric load.
A Little Rock (Mabelvale) native and graduate of the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, Carroll is an avid turkey hunter in the spring and duck hunter in winter. His professional affiliations include the Arkansas Society of CPAs, the American Institute of CPAs, the American Public Power Association and the Arkansas Municipal Power Association, serving on the boards of the latter two.
