Fran Glover Forehand
Metro North Region Manager 

Fran Forehand serves as the Metro North Region Manager for Georgia Power. Prior to her current role in Metro North, Forehand served as the Land Acquisition Manager for Georgia Power where she was responsible for securing the property rights for Georgia Power’s Distribution, Transmission and Generation projects state-wide.

Georgia Power, an investor-owned, tax-paying utility, serves 1.15 million customers in metro Atlanta and a total of 2.35 million customers in all but four of Georgia’s 159 counties. To serve this extensive metro Atlanta customer base, Georgia Power has 24 business offices, 15 distribution and operating headquarters and four transmission maintenance centers located in the region. For more than a century, Georgia Power has been providing reliable electricity to Georgia at rates well below the national average.

Georgia Power also has a long history of community and economic development, helping Georgia’s communities grow and prosper for more than 80 years. The company operates under the saying “Citizen Wherever We Serve,” a phrase coined in 1927 by Georgia Power’s first president, Preston Arkwright. To reflect this motto, Georgia Power is proud to be a part of each community that it serves and offers opportunities to make a difference in people’s lives and businesses. Employees play an important role in accomplishing this by volunteering for charities and service organizations and supporting local community civic organizations. In Gwinnett, Georgia Power partners with the Chamber of Commerce and other local and community civic organizations that help make Gwinnett the thriving county it is today.

In addition, Georgia Power has been involved with Partnership Gwinnett since its inception in 2007. “Georgia Power is committed to furthering the efforts of Partnership Gwinnett,” said Forehand. “The impact from the strategies completed through the initiative has been a strong economic development engine for Gwinnett, as well as the state of Georgia.”
