Randall Luthi, who was director of the Interior Department’s Minerals Management Service between July 2007 and January 2009, Monday became president of National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA), which represents the offshore energy industry. He succeeds Tom Fry, who retired after heading up the organization for years. The NOIA board of directors selected Luthi as Fry’s successor at its meeting last fall. “I’m honored to have this opportunity to represent the NOIA membership and excited by the upcoming challenge of working to impact policies favorable to the offshore energy industry,” Luthi said.
