DENTON — Choptank Electric recently hired Leroy Sverduk as its new vice president of engineering services. He began his duties on Monday, Sept. 16.

Sverduk was Delaware Electric Cooperative’s manager of metering and power supply. He had been with Delaware Electric since 2011, when he originally was hired as a systems engineer. Before joining Delaware, he led research in underwater electromagnetic sensor and sensor systems for the Office of Naval Research and Naval Surface Warfare Center in Carderock, Md., where he was an electronics engineer.

Sverduk earned a Bachelor of Science in engineering with an electrical concentration from Messiah College, and is a licensed professional engineer in Delaware and Maryland. He also has completed the Robert I. Kabat Management Program, which is a six-week NRECA leadership training program.
