Charles D. McCrary
Charles McCrary is President and Chief Executive Officer of Alabama Power Company, which provides electricity to 1.4 million customers in Alabama.
Mr. McCrary joined Alabama Power during the summer of 1970 following his freshman year at Auburn University and has held various positions of increasing responsibility within Southern Company. He served as Vice President for Southern Nuclear Operating Company and later held the positions of President of Southern Company Generation, Chief Production Officer of Southern Company and President of Southern Power Company.
A family-centered man, his roots are deep in Alabama and Birmingham. Mr. McCrary was born in Birmingham in 1951. He graduated from Shades Valley High School, and earned his B.S. in mechanical engineering from Auburn University. He went on to earn a Juris Doctor from Birmingham School of Law and was admitted to the Alabama State Bar in 1979. He is married to the former Phyllis Brantley of Birmingham and they are the parents of two sons, Doug and Alex.
Integrally involved in the Birmingham community, Mr. McCrary serves as Chairman of the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama. He serves on the boards of Regions Financial Corporation, Mercedes-Benz U.S. International, Inc., Protective Life Corporation, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and Southern Research Institute. He also is a member of the Auburn University Board of Trustees and in 2003 was inducted into the State of Alabama Engineering Hall of Fame.
A sometimes golfer, he is a frequent Harley-Davidson rider and, as a frustrated mechanic, an avid restorer of old cars and jukeboxes.
