A former power plant manager, Bryant was instrumental in the operations and maintenance of three FPL Energy Centers. He also served as General Manager of Wind Central Maintenance that led the restoration of wind turbine fleets across North American before moving into External Affairs. 

Before NextEra Energy, he worked for Southern Company in Birmingham, Alabama, where he led a multi-discipline engineering team in designing simple-cycle and combined-cycle power generation facilities and environmental control systems. 

A native of Goldsboro, North Carolina, Bryant began his utility career in 1997 with power generation engineering roles with Black & Veatch Corporation.
