New President Kim Byung-sook of Korea Western Power Co. (KOWEPO) took helm of the power company as its 8th president & CEO at an inauguration ceremony at the KOWEPO headquarters in Taean, Chungcheongnam-do, on March 8. 

KOWEPO President Kim stressed the importance of fast and efficient management innovation at his inaugural speech. Quoting President Moon Jae-in’s remarks that those who fail to spearhead innovation will become the subject of innovation, new KOWEPO President Kim said he will set his management tenet ― growing KOWEPO into a differentiated power company through fast and efficient management innovation. 

Through management innovation, he said, KOWPO will carry out its priority responsibility of stabilizing the national power supply, securing future growth engines, leading power technology development and fulfilling social responsibilities. 

President Kim, born in 1958, graduated from Jeolla High School and Chonbuk National University Electric Department. He obtained a master’s degree in business administration from University of Helsinki Graduate School and a doctorate degree in electricity from Chonbuk National University Graduate School. 

Kim held such positions of Korea Electric Power Corp. as president of the Electricity Research Institute, head of the Technology Engineering Division and chief of the New Growth Division and he also served as president of Ullung Island Eco-Friendly Energy Independence before being appointed to be KOWEPO president.  

KOWEPO Wins Social Contribution Grand Prize 

KOWEPO was honored with the deputy prime minister-education minister award in education sharing category in 2018 Happiness Plus Social Contribution Awards at the Seoul Lotte Hotel in downtown Seoul on Feb. 27. 

KOWEPO has been praised for carrying out social contribution activities to proactively correspond with the government’s demand for realizing social values since last October when the power company established the vision “Shared Energy for Better Tomorrow,” a business partner creating a better future via energy. 

KOWEPO has been credited with devoting itself to nurturing future talent of the local community by implementing diverse education sharing programs, including a study mentoring program and a KOWEPO quality maestro & specialized high school student mentoring program. 

Under the study mentoring program, 20 prominent university students live in Taean, the headquarters of KOWEPO, and give a helping hand on study guidance, future study course and sympathy exchanges to about 200 middle and high school students in the local community. 

A combined 40 college mentor students and 421 mentee students participated in the program, which made its debut in the summer of 2017. Riding on hot concern and good reception from the local community, the program is expected to emerge as one of KOWEPO’s representative social contribution activities.
