ETSU student Entrepreneurs’ Club meeting to host Beth Ringley

            The East Tennessee State University student Entrepreneurs’ Club will welcome Beth Ringley as its speaker on Monday, Oct. 5, at 5 p.m. in room 130 of Sam Wilson Hall.

            Ringley was employed in the electric utility industry, which has provided experience in the development and implementation of financial and operational plans that allow electric utility to add telecommunication services. She worked for Bristol Tennessee Essential Services for 10 years as Director of Management Services. This opportunity allowed her to participate in each stage of the successful fiber-to-the-user system.

            Ringley co-founded The Motive Group with Alan Ellison, Jennifer McCain and Kevin McCain. At The Motive Group, Ringley uses her skills to consult with electric utilities across the country in developing their financial plans, assisting with organization preparedness, and offering input to businesses struggling to succeed.

            On Oct. 5, Ringley will be sharing her experience regarding the electric utility industry and telecommunications as well as small business start-up.

            The public is invited to this free program. Directions to Sam Wilson Hall can be found by visiting .  For additional information, or to arrange special assistance for those with disabilities, contact Mitzi Brookshear at or (423) 439-7444.
