Employee Spotlight: Jeff Heinrich
By Andrew Triner on August 15, 2019
Despite starting at NOPEC just over a month ago, Relationship Manager Jeff Heinrich couldn't feel more at home.
"Even though I have worked here for two months, it has felt like years," he said. "Slowly getting to know my teammates has been one of the best parts of this job so far."
The native Clevelander is the fifth newest member of the Relationship Management team, covering Portage, Geauga, Mahoning, and Columbiana counties.
“Being raised in Northeast Ohio, growing up in Cleveland, I wanted to make sure I was giving back to that community, the community that gave me so much. Working for the Ohio communities, especially Northeast Ohio, is a win-win," he said.
As a relationship manager, Heinrich is responsible for building and maintaining relationships with communities in NOPEC's aggregation. He is constantly out on the road, meeting with key government officials and teaching them all the ways their community can save on their energy costs.
"What makes me proud to work here is serving our communities, making sure they’re happy with their membership, and knowing that they are not just a number, but a member,” he said.
Heinrich is used to working for organizations that support Ohio communities. In fact, he already knows many of the community leaders in his territory from his previous job as a public affairs representative for the Ohio Treasury's Office.
“The best part about my job is knowing that when community leaders see me, they know that I am with an organization that they are familiar with, and happy with," he said.
Outside of work, Jeff loves exploring all that the area has to offer. You will often find him going to concerts, hitting up a local microbrewery, running on one of the local trails, or watching one of his favorite Cleveland sports teams.
Heinrich also loves spending time at his Cleveland Heights home with his wife, Mandy, and his daughter, Ruby. He looks forward to welcoming a new member of the family in the fall.
