He has been an executive committee member of the Natural Gas Supply Association of America (NGSA), member of the Natural Gas Council, and a former advisory board member of the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX).  Niemiec has testified as an expert witness representing the oil and natural gas industry before the US Senate, the US House of Representatives, the Texas Railroad Commission, and the Texas State Public Utility Commission.  

    Following six years in the US Navy Nuclear Submarine Service, Niemiec earned a bachelor’s degree from Princeton University. As an executive he has participated in the Harvard Business School Advanced Management and Advanced Marketing Management Programs.  Don will be based in Holland’s corporate offices in Fort Worth, Texas.
