Meet the 205: Nancy Collat Goedecke

Goedecke and Mayer Electric Supply have always been connected through her grandfather, Ben Weil, who founded the business in 1930, and her mother and father, Patsy and Charles Collat, who took the helm in 1979. Goedecke began working at Mayer during the summers of her high school years. In 2005, she was named vice chairman of the Board and, in 2008, chair of the board and CEO. Goedecke was recently chosen to be the first woman in the 93-year history of the United Way of Central Alabama (UWCA) to chair the organization’s annual fundraising campaign.
