Southern Company`s national accounts voted one of the best in country

ATLANTA - Southern Company’s national accounts program has been voted by customers as one of the best in the country for service and responsiveness to customers.

The Edison Electric Institute’s National Accounts Customer Advisory Group conducted a survey recently of hundreds of large multi-site electricity customers across the country. The customers, asked to identify their top three national account programs on a write-in ballot, named a total of 30 companies with Southern Company among the three receiving the most votes.

“In the highly competitive market for national accounts, you have to constantly prove yourself worthy of customers’ business. So it is a real honor for Southern Company people to be recognized by the customers themselves for providing great service,” said Marie Mouchet, manager national accounts for Southern Company.

In the same survey, Cindy Evans, regional account manager for Southern Company, was selected as one of the country’s top 5 account representatives.

"Southern Company continues to approach customer service as a top priority. Southern Company is not only responsive, but also proactive, taking advantage of opportunities to partner with customers on projects," said Margaret Manning, assistant vice president at TJX.
