“PESA has built a professional team to address the complex issues the oil and gas industry faces at the federal, state and local levels, and we are very excited to welcome Tim. He has an extraordinary network of contacts among government officials and business leaders that will strengthen PESA’s footprint,” said PESA Past Chairman Galen Cobb, V.P. of Industry Relations, Halliburton.
