Syphrett to Serve Beach Areas, Chambers and Liberty Counties
Beaumont, Texas – Entergy Texas has
put a new face on customer service in a large portion of the traditionally more
rural areas it serves west of Beaumont between Houston and the beach.
Dan Syphrett, a 29-year Entergy
veteran and Winnie native, has been named customer service manager for the
Bolivar Peninsula, Chambers and Liberty counties, including the communities of
Winnie, Anahuac, Liberty, Dayton, Ames, Daisetta, Hardin and Devers.
“Dan brings a wealth of experience to
customers in the area,” said Todd Dunkleberger, regional customer service
manager for Entergy Texas. “Plus, he already knows many of the people and
places, and is familiar with the customer service issues we need to address.”
Syphrett noted that the area he now
serves is experiencing tremendous growth at opposite ends – the beach area for
one, and the portions close to Houston at the other.
“I look forward to working developers
in those areas, as well as handling the day-in, day-out needs of our customers,”
Syphrett said, adding that he will become active in the communities.
An East Chambers High School
graduate, Syphrett is also a graduate of Texas A&M University. He previously
worked as the customer service manager for Orange, a post he held for 11 years.
He began his career at Gulf States Utilities in the legal and claims department
and also worked in public affairs and as a superintendent over an area that
included Sour Lake and Daisetta.
Syphrett has two sons, Daniel W.
Syphrett IV, 23; and Garrett, 21.
