TVA Honors 2018 Engineer Of The Year At February Board Meeting

Friday, February 16, 2018

Greg Goza, a veteran transmission and power supply engineer, was honored as the Tennessee Valley Authority’s Ike Zeringue Engineer of the Year during the TVA board of directors meeting Friday in Chattanooga.  

Mr. Goza, a 44-year TVA employee, serves as the primary interface between TVA’s Transmission Planning Department and Economic Development staff, helping ensure these teams can attract jobs and investment into the Tennessee Valley.

 

“TVA is honored to recognize Greg Goza as the 2018 Ike Zeringue Engineer of the Year,” said TVA President and CEO Bill Johnson. “Each year, we have the pleasure of recognizing an individual who exemplifies excellence in the engineering field and a steadfast commitment to TVA’s mission of service. Greg has made significant contributions to lift up our communities by bringing new jobs into the region, which supports TVA’s mission of improving life in the Valley.”

Over the past three years, Mr. Goza has diligently coordinated 77 industrial inquiries involving more than 370 site requests. His work has helped land five large companies, representing 2,400 jobs and $1.48 billion in investments, in addition to two proposed Google data centers with an additional $1.2 billion investment.

“Greg has distinguished himself as a leader who tirelessly helps create job opportunities for our friends and neighbors,” said Bob Dalrymple, TVA senior vice president, Transmission & Power Supply. “He has committed his professional endeavors to help make the Valley a great place to live, work and raise your family.”

The award is TVA’s highest honor for an engineer and named for O.J. “Ike” Zeringue, a former TVA president and chief operating officer, and chief nuclear officer.

Mr. Goza is also a finalist for the Federal Engineer of the Year Award, which will be presented Feb. 23 in Washington, D.C.

A graduate of the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga with a bachelor’s of science degree in engineering, electrical concentration and a master’s of science in engineering, Mr. Goza is a senior program manager for TVA’s Industrial Development, Transmission Planning and Asset Management group within the Transmission & Power Supply organization and is a registered professional engineer in Tennessee.
