Andrew (Andy) H. Hines, Jr., oversaw one of the largest electric utilities in Florida for nearly two decades and continues to be involved in energy projects. Andy served as president of Florida Power Corp. from 1972-1982 after beginning his career with the organization as an assistant production engineer. In 1982 he was named chairman of Florida Power’s parent company, Florida Progress, a Fortune-500 company, and upon his retirement in 1991 was named chairman emeritus. His next venture was the founding of Triangle Consulting Group in St. Petersburg, Florida. Throughout his career, his expertise has included electric utility operations as well as coal-mining ventures, finance, and research and development. A native of Florida, he graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering with high honors and has since received honorary degrees from Stetson University’s College of Law, the University of Florida, the University of South Florida, and other colleges. Andy has served as president of the University of Florida’s Alumni Association, and the university’s College of Engineering named an Eminent Scholar Chair professorship in his honor in recognition of his contributions to education. He also has served as a director of numerous financial institutions, including Franklin Templeton Investments’ funds and the C & S Bank in Georgia (which became part of the merger that created NationsBank, now part of Bank of America). He is a fellow in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and was a registered engineer for over fifty years. In addition to his business successes, Andy has long committed himself to bettering society by supporting educational, civic, and religious organizations with both his time and resources. Part of his motivation stems from his experience as a prisoner of war for over seven months when serving in the military as a young man.
