The American Petroleum Institute (API) has appointed Megan Barnett Bloomgren as its new Vice President for Communications.
Bloomgren most recently served as Acting Deputy Chief of Staff for the US Department of the Interior. The current Vice President, Linda Rozett, will retire later this month after seven years of service.
Jack Gerard, API President and CEO, said: “We are pleased to welcome Megan as our new head of communications […] There is no aspect of communications Megan is unfamiliar with, and I am certain her vast energy experience in government and the private sector will make her a tremendous asset to advancing API’s advocacy efforts.”
Bloomgren said: “I am excited to join a dynamic organisation and give voice to an industry whose impact is felt in every household across the country and around the globe […] The energy industry powered by natural gas and oil is pioneering innovations every day that help to meet the world’s challenges more quickly and more efficiently than ever thought possible. I look forward to working with Jack Gerard and API’s talented team to advance the energy industry’s contributions to the policy debate.”
