GREENFIELD — NineStar Connect has named Michael Burrow as its new president and chief executive officer one week after the departure of Tim Hills, whose retirement became effective March 13.
Burrow’s appointment to the cooperative’s top spot occurred during a special board meeting Wednesday.
Prior to being named interim president and CEO upon Hills’ departure, Burrow had been the company’s vice president and general counsel after NineStar was formed in 2011 by the merger of Hancock Telecom and Central Indiana Power. The co-operative offers telecommunications and electrical services.
Burrow joined Hancock Telecom in 1999 as that company’s general counsel after providing legal services to the company in his private practice.
A lifelong Hancock County resident, it was Burrow’s passion for the company and his community that made him the board’s choice for the leadership position, said NineStar board chairman Steve Vail.
