Board Member Terry Takes Big Promotion with Georgia Power

Bentina Terry, an executive with Gulf Power in the Florida Panhandle, has stepped down from The Children’s Movement of Florida’s Board of Directors after accepting a promotion with sister company George Power in Atlanta.

Terry, who had been Gulf Power’s vice president for customer service and sales in Pensacola, was named senior vice president of the Metro Atlanta Region for Georgia Power.

The Children’s Movement will begin a search for her replacement on the board in the coming months.

“Bentina has been a tireless advocate and champion for children in both Escambia County and Florida – and her presence in our state will be deeply missed,” said Movement CEO Vance Aloupis. “We wish her the very best as she begins this new chapter. Georgia and its children are so lucky to have her.”

Terry was also involved in number of civic leadership groups, including serving as chair of the Florida Chamber of Commerce Foundation from 2012-14 and as chair of Leadership Florida from 2014-15. She received the Pensacola Chamber of Commerce’s Community Leader of the Year award in 2013.
