Mr. Mahurin has served Hilliard Lyons in different capacities since 1968. He earned a B.A. in Chemistry from Western Kentucky University, and worked as a high school math and science teacher before beginning his career with Hilliard Lyons.

Mr. Pete Mahurin and his wife, Dixie, have been honored by many organizations for their philanthropic work. They were recipients of Western Kentucky University's Philanthropists of the Year award in 2011. Their desire to further education for Kentucky students is evident through the creation of the Mahurin Endowed Professorship in Gifted Studies at Western Kentucky University, as well as their assistance in relocating the headquarters of the World Council for Gifted and Talented Children to WKU. The Mahurin family also supports Lindsey Wilson College, and the Governors Scholars of Kentucky program.

Regarding the nomination, Mr. Mahurin states: "The Tennessee Valley Authority's vision of cleaner air, increased nuclear power, and enhanced energy efficiency is exciting, and I look forward to the day it comes to fruition. The goal for the TVA remains focused upon providing affordable electricity for its consumers. I am honored to receive President Obama's nomination to the Board of Directors of the Tennessee Valley Authority, and will serve to the best of my ability."
