The Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA) has elected Dominion Energy President Diane Leopold chairman of the INGAA board for a term running until October 2017. She is the first woman to hold the title in INGAA's 70-year history. "...Diane will be at the forefront of our industry's efforts to promote pipelines as the essential link in achieving natural gas' potential as a solution to the nation's energy, environmental and economic challenges," said INGAA CEO Don Santa. Leopold joined Dominion Resources, the parent company of Dominion Energy, in 1995. During her 21-year career at Dominion, she has held leadership roles in operational, project management, commercial and financial management positions in several Dominion business units. As president of Dominion Energy, Leopold is responsible for more than 12,000 miles of interstate natural gas pipeline in eight states, 22,000 miles of distribution pipelines, 1.3 million natural gas customers and one of the largest natural gas storage systems in the U.S. She also is a board member of the American Gas Association. INGAA's board also elected Jeff Bruner, president of Iroquois Pipeline Operating Co., as first vice chairman; and Frank Ferazzi, vice president and general manager of eastern interstates for Williams-Transco, as second vice chair.
