HU customers may have noticed two new faces reading meters recently. Hunter McAbee and Brandon Robertson are HU’s new meter readers. McAbee grew up in Hartselle with his parents, Christi Henry and Troy McAbee, and graduated from Hartselle High School in 2010. Before joining HU, he worked as a nuclear plant inspector.
Robertson is a former Marine from Greensburg, KY. His met his wife, Hartselle native Ashley (formerly Hollingsworth), in the Marines, and after leaving the military they decided to settle in Hartselle to be near her family. Robertson worked for Hartselle Parks & Recreation for five years before joining HU. The Robertsons have two daughters.
Both men say one of their favorite things about being a meter reader is being outdoors. “I would not want to be cooped up at a desk all day,” says McAbee, “so this is perfect.”
