Although Don Francis became the coordinator for the Georgia Clean Cities coalition in April 2009, he is not new to the program. He attended the ceremony when Atlanta was designated as the first Clean Cities coalition in the nation at the Georgia Dome in 1993. Prior to being elected as the coalition's executive director, Francis served on the board of directors and as the treasurer from 2000 to 2005. He has 40 years of experience in automotive engineering, sales, and marketing activities.

Francis was previously employed by Georgia Power for 31 years, 13 years of which he was assigned to the electric transportation program. His primary responsibility was business unit management for the sale, installation, and service of electric vehicle chargers to internal and external customers. During this time, he served on many local community and industry committees working on electric vehicle infrastructure and market development.

Francis continues to be active in the electric vehicle community. He is a member of the board of directors of the Electric Auto Association and a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers.
