So, we’re falling behind.”

3. View From the Hill: Haslam Credits GOP ‘Experiment’ for Tennessee’s Success -

If you ask Gov. Bill Haslam, Republican government is the best thing since sliced bread.

Not only is GOP leadership responsible for a myriad of tax cuts leading to record surpluses and a $37 billion budget funding better K-12 and higher education, shoring up the rainy day and TennCare funds, shrinking state debt and building an economic environment for job creation, Haslam says. It’s even bringing us the cleanest air since before the industrial revolution.

4. Haslam Credits Republican Leadership for Budget, Economic Accomplishments -

With the legislative session finished, Gov. Bill Haslam is touting budget accomplishments and a strong economy as the result of Republican leadership.

Doug Petty has joined Phoenix Power Group as the new vice president of sales and marketing.

Hometown: Memphis
Education:
I hold B.S. degrees in chemistry and industrial hygiene from the University of North Alabama
Work Experience:
I worked for 10 years as a specialty hospital sales representative for Merck Pharmaceuticals. For nine years I was a senior industrial hygienist for EnSafe Inc.
Activities you enjoy outside of work:
You can usually find me on a golf course, but I also spend time singing and playing guitar in the Memphis area. I enjoy watching Tigers football and basketball games and cooking out with friends.
Who has had the greatest influence on you?
My parents are my greatest influences. I obviously chose wisely.
What drew you to Phoenix Power Group?
I was drawn to the opportunity to become involved on the ground floor of such an innovative, revolutionary system. In addition, this was a chance to be associated with a talented and experienced group of professionals and investors. Based on my years of professional experience, I know a good thing when I see it.
What does your job as VP of sales and marketing entail?
Our company utilizes breakthrough technology to convert used oil into electricity in an environmentally responsible manner. My position utilizes my background in environmental science, regulation, and high-performance marketing and sales. My specific responsibilities include managing regulatory affairs, developing marketing materials, training and distributor support.
What do you consider your greatest professional accomplishments?
It would have to be the relationships that I’ve built with co-workers, clients and customers over the years. Those are things that can’t be measured on a spreadsheets or sales reports. Winning the Regional Medical Center’s 2007 Pharmaceutical Representative of the Year Award certainly comes to mind.
What do you most enjoy about your work?
The level of excitement and energy around the PPG organization is remarkable. I’ve been looking for the opportunity to help launch a potential “Next Big Thing” for quite a long time. It is hard not to be excited when your field of work is always pushing the edge and creating new challenges and opportunities. No one has done what we are doing, so we really are a “new” idea. That comes with challenges and benefits; but there is something unique about “creating” a product, something that a cubicle just can’t offer.
