Tornow

NEWPORT — Pend Oreille County Public Utility District has hired Kenna Tornow as Communications and Public Contracts Manager.

Tornow comes to the PUD from Gallatin Public Affairs where she consulted with clients on media relations, crisis communications, and government affairs. She will leverage her experience with Gallatin to help build and grow the PUD’s existing brand, connect with the public, deliver information and oversee all contracts for the PUD.

“A major component of providing quality service is open communication,” said Colin Willenbrock, PUD General Manager. “Kenna will help the PUD continue that open dialogue so the Commissioners and our team can make informed decisions about what our customers need out of their utility.”

The Eastern Washington University Journalism grad was also a writer for the student newspaper and interned at KHQ-TV. With her established journalistic background she will be able to craft informational releases about the PUD for the public.

“This small rural PUD is doing a lot of great things and making thoughtful decisions for the future,” said Tornow. “It is my goal to listen carefully and get the information out there in a way that our customers and communities know about the important work going on around them. I simply want people to know what we do.”

Tornow grew up in Chehalis, where she inherited her family’s knowledge of agriculture and business. She is a proud EWU Football fan, and a huge supporter of the Seahawks and Mariners.
