Pipeline operator Tallgrass Energy, LP announced the promotion of Chief Operating Officer Bill Moler to President.
The move is effective immediately and David G. Dehaemers Jr. will remain as CEO and Moler will also keep his current COO title.
A 30-year veteran of the oil and gas industry recognized for his deep expertise in the midstream sector, Moler has been Executive Vice President and COO since the company’s inception in 2012.
As COO, the company management said he has played a pivotal role in Tallgrass’ growth – both organically and through acquisition – by aligning and maximizing the company’s commercial growth strategies and focusing commercial efforts on adding value to customers at every turn.
“I’m delighted to announce Bill’s ascent to President, a move that recognizes his increasingly vital role to our company,” said Tallgrass CEO David G. Dehaemers Jr. “Over the years, Bill has shown tremendous leadership capabilities across the company, throughout the industry and with our customers. I have worked with Bill for most of the last 20 years and have seen him grow into an energy executive clearly ready for this increased responsibility.”
Tallgrass Energy is based in Kansas City and has pipeline or midstream operations in 11 states. Much of its oil is shipped from Wyoming and Colorado south to the Cushing hub in Oklahoma.
