Letter from Mike Grubb, President and CEO, SGA

SGA Members and Associate Members,

I wanted to take this opportunity to update you on some important news with SGA. Late last year, I informed the SGA Board of Directors of my plans to retire from SGA effective the end of 2016. I have had the pleasure of working at Southern Gas Association since 1996 and directly for an engaged, supportive SGA Board since 2008.

SGA is healthy financially and supported by over 500 volunteer leaders serving on 50+ committees as well as a talented staff in Dallas. I am proud to have been a part of such a great organization over the years, and I am glad to see the organization is well positioned for continued success for many years to come.

I wanted to provide a full year of service as president and CEO to assist with a thoughtful transition, and the SGA Board has already launched a search for your next president and CEO.  Working with David Pruner, a former natural gas executive and now a partner with Heidrick & Struggles, the targeted timeline is to have the new person on board in advance of the November board meeting. We will send updates, as appropriate, as they become available.

It has been and will continue to be my pleasure to serve as your president and CEO through the end of 2016. I appreciate your friendship and support.

-Mike Grubb
