IBEW International President Lonnie R. Stephenson Announces Retirement; New Appointees Announced

Nov 23, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. (November 23, 2022)- “I want to congratulate President Stephenson on his retirement as International President of the IBEW. President Stephenson and I take great pride in our work together to help solve problems and create solutions for our great industry. Together we worked tirelessly through a worldwide pandemic to ensure our workforce was rightly recognized as essential workers – workers we help keep safe as possible throughout one of the most unprecedented periods of uncertainty and growth for our organizations.

I look forward to working with Kenny Cooper as the new International President. We've spent a great deal discussing issues concerning our health care funds and ensuring our retirement and pension plans were administered as best as possible for the betterment of every working man and woman in the industry.

I welcome Paul Noble in his new role as Secretary-Treasurer. Paul has always been a tremendously successful working partner in the Sixth District, and we look forward to working with him in his new leadership role.

Lastly, I wish Mike Clemmons well as the new Sixth District International Vice President. Mike has worked tirelessly adjusting and working to find answers to questions presented daily.

With this new team in place, I know we will build upon the excellent work and progress we have made, and I know we will pave the way for continued success for our contractors and workers across America.”
