AEP names Stanley Partlow Vice President & Chief Security Officer

American Electric Power (NYSE: AEP) has named Stanley E. Partlow vice president and chief security officer effective Sept. 1. Partlow, 57, has served as managing director - Security & Aviation since 2010. In addition to Partlow’s current responsibilities for physical security and AEP aviation, he will oversee the company’s cyber security efforts. Partlow will report to Robert P. Powers, executive vice president and chief operating officer.

“Stan’s extensive law enforcement experience and his relationships with security experts and law enforcement agencies across the country are an asset to AEP,” Powers said. “By combining our physical and cyber security efforts under Stan’s leadership, we can leverage the expertise of both teams to make our security operations even more robust in the face of increasingly more sophisticated and persistent threats.”

Partlow joined AEP in 2005 as director - Security & Aviation after a distinguished 25-year career in law enforcement. Earlier in his career, Partlow held several supervisory positions with the City of Columbus Division of Police and was a special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
