Southern Electric Corporation has named Ashley Brown, the company’s Payroll Manager, as its Power

allowing SEC to Power Forward.

Brown says the best part of her job is talking to the guys in the field, problem-solving and trying to make
their jobs easier. The worst part? “Deadlines!” she says matter-of-factly. “Especially around holidays.”

“Ashley has the qualities it takes to be a great payroll manager… accuracy, a strong work ethic and
unwavering dedication to her job,” says Sprayberry, Office Manager for SEC.

“I love my job and SEC. It really is like family here,” beams Brown. “I love getting to know the guys in the
field and being able to put a face to all the names I talk to on the phone so much.”

Brown and her husband, Brian, have been married 13 years. They live in Brandon, MS with their 3
daughters Harper (10), Averi (8), and Carsen (7). Brown loves spending time with her family, watching
her girls in gymnastics, dining out, and traveling. “And one last thing,” she adds. “ROLL TIDE!”
