Stan Pinegar, President, Duke Energy Indiana Plainfield Sometimes work becomes family. That's what happened when Columbus residents Chip and Julie Orben joined what is now Duke Energy in 1986. They didn't know each other at that time, and, in fact, were applying for the same job. Fortunately, there was more than one position available, and we hired both. They met through the company orientation process and eventually married. They are now both retiring on Nov. 30 after 36 years of service. Over more than three decades, Chip and Julie have been ambassadors for our company in the greater Columbus area.
