April 19, 2024

(WO) – The National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) Board of Directors has elected Jonathan Landes, President, Subsea of TechnipFMC, as the NOIA Chair for the 2024-2025 term. Joe Leimkuhler, Chief Operating Officer of Beacon Offshore Energy, was elected as the 2024-2025 Vice Chair. Jon and Joe were confirmed in their positions during the NOIA Board of Directors meeting Friday morning.

NOIA President Erik Milito said, “We are at a critical juncture where it's imperative to ensure that energy policy from Washington, D.C. does not hinder American energy production. Whether it's advocating for offshore energy reform in Congress, providing greater certainty for oil and gas and wind lease sales, or implementing the first federal offshore carbon sequestration rules, Washington holds the key to shaping the future of domestic offshore energy development and production.”

“With Jon and Joe at the helm, armed with their extensive expertise and unwavering dedication, we are poised to champion the interests of our industry. Together, we eagerly anticipate collaborating closely to advocate for the continued growth and prosperity of American offshore energy."

“We also must thank outgoing NOIA chair Paul Danos for his leadership and commitment in steadfastly representing the nation’s offshore sector.”

NOIA Chair Jon Landes said, "NOIA serves as a crucial nexus, uniting the diverse array of energy companies that comprise the offshore energy sector. Our industry's success translates into high-quality jobs for American workers, the provision of affordable and lower carbon energy for our nation, and the development of environmental solutions that can enhance our communities.”

NOIA Vice Chair Joe Leimkuhler said, “This is a pivotal moment for offshore energy policy, and NOIA's membership is uniquely positioned to spearhead transformative change in the energy sector.”

Jonathan Landes is President of TechnipFMC’s Subsea business. Jon has over 25 years of experience in the energy sector and has held a number of senior-level leadership roles, including Senior Vice President for all Commercial and Front-End Engineering activities for TechnipFMC’s Subsea business and President, North America for TechnipFMC Subsea.

Jon received his MBA from the University of Notre Dame, and BS and MS degrees in Agricultural Engineering from Purdue University.  In 2011, Jon received the ABE Outstanding Alumni award from Purdue University.  Jon serves on the Board and Executive Committee for NOIA.
