Dominion Energy’s First Black President Aims to ‘Pave the Way for Others’

A 25-year Dominion Energy Virginia veteran has become the first African American administrator to lead the utility company.

Ed Baine, who credits his wife and three sons as the inspiration for his success, said he was both humbled and honored to accept the promotion to Dominion president.

“I don’t take it lightly because every day I know people are watching, judging seeing how I perform in the role,” he said, WTVR-TV reported. “I want to make sure that I pave the way for others like folks have done for me.”

Baine, who’s primarily responsible for keeping the lights on for 2.7 million Dominion customers, said the spirit of helping others was instilled in him as a young boy.

“When we weren’t working on our farm, [my] grandfather, dad and others, we would go help on other people’s farms,” Baine said. “Our family, we live by the Bible verse Luke 12:48: ‘To whom much is given, much is expected.’ When you help people, you give them hope.”
