Lynn Granger was named executive director of the Colorado Petroleum Council and will lead the advocacy association during this critical time for the energy industry.

With radical activists now pulling the strings in the Democratic-controlled legislature and the industry facing increasing calls for a moratorium on our leading economic driver, Granger has her work cut out for her.

In making the announcement, American Petroleum Institute President and CEO Mike Sommers noted Colorado is a cornerstone of America’s energy revolution, and says Granger’s leadership skills will be necessary to lead the industry forward.

“The natural gas and oil industry thrives on collaborative, proactive engagement with stakeholders on every side of energy policy issues, and Lynn’s breadth of experience in government, military and business matters is uniquely suited for this role.”

Granger joins the council from Colorado Concern, a business advocacy association where she served as chief operating officer.
