Regina Hopper to resign as ANGA CEO

After three and a half years as president and CEO of America’s Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA), Regina Hopper has submitted her resignation from the organization effective February 28, 2013.

Hopper joined ANGA in November of 2009, the same year the alliance was formed by certain North American independent natural gas exploration and production companies. ANGA represents 29 of the nation’s leading independent natural gas exploration and production companies. Together, ANGA members produce more than 40% of the total US natural gas supply.

Hopper came to ANGA after holding senior positions at USTelecom and the American Trucking Associations. She helped build ANGA into a unique advocacy-marketing hybrid with operations in 18 states, Washington D.C. and Canada.

“Since beginning her role as CEO in 2009, Regina has been instrumental in the emergence of America’s Natural Gas Alliance as a leading voice in sharing the unprecedented opportunities available today in North America as a result of its abundant, clean and affordable natural gas,” said ANGA chairman and Apache CEO, G. Steven Farris. “Regina’s leadership was essential in building business relationships with state electric utilities and enhancing understanding among policy makers regarding the importance of utilizing a plentiful and beneficial domestic energy resource. She has led ANGA’s growth from its infancy into its becoming an important voice in the discussion around fuel diversity and economic growth for our nation. We are grateful for her service, for the strong organization she leaves behind, and we wish her much success in her future endeavors.”

“I was hired to build an effective and powerful advocacy organization with strong fiscal management,” Hopper said. “By all accounts we have achieved these important objectives. I am proud of the team we assembled, the work done and the accomplishments achieved for this important American industry.”

Prior to joining ATA, Hopper served as senior vice president of litigation communications at Weber McGinn.She is departing ANGA to return to litigation communications. Farris said ANGA will immediately begin conducting the search for a successor.
