York Water CFO to retire at end of 2017

Kathleen Miller has been with company since 1996

The CFO and treasurer of the York Water Co. has announced plans to retire at the end of 2017.

Kathleen Miller, CFO since 2003 and a York Water employee since 1996, recently notified the company of her retirement plans, according to a filing last week with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Reached late Friday afternoon, York Water’s President and CEO Jeffrey Hines confirmed Miller’s plans, and said the firm plans to name its current controller, Matthew Poff, as CFO upon Miller’s retirement.

Poff has served as York Water’s controller since 2009.

He formerly was CFO at I. B. Abel, an electrical contractor in York, for three years, and for 11 years had been with Beard Miller Co., a public accounting firm, and its predecessor, Miller and Co., the SEC filing said.

In an April interview with the Central Penn Business Journal, Miller discussed her love of hiking and her hopes to do more in retirement.

The York Water Co. supplies nearly 20 million gallons of water daily and has more than 66,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers, the report continued.

Over 194,000 people use its water in 48 communities in York and Adams counties, it added.

York Water Co., which turned 200 years old in 2016, is the oldest company in both the city and county of York.
