By Bob Downing Published: February 12, 2014

From America's Natural Gas Alliance today:

ANGA President and Chief Executive Officer Marty Durbin today announced that Frank J. Macchiarola has been named ANGA’s Executive Vice President, Government Affairs.

In this capacity, Macchiarola will strategically integrate ANGA’s federal and state government affairs activities with its broader advocacy resources – communications, market development and research/policy analysis. His first day at ANGA will be March 17, 2014.

“Frank brings a trusted, experienced hand to ANGA. He will help execute our mission to promote greater use of abundant, domestic and affordable natural gas,” said Durbin. “Frank understands the economic, environmental and security benefits of natural gas, and his experience with complex national policy issues – from energy to health care – will bring great value to our team.”

Macchiarola joins ANGA from the law firm of Bracewell & Giuliani LLP where, as partner in the policy resolution group, he advised clients on energy legislation and policy along with healthcare, education and labor issues. Prior to his time at Bracewell, Macchiarola was Minority Staff Director for the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee (HELP) under then-Ranking Member Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY). He also previously served as both Majority and Minority Staff Director and Counsel to Sen. Pete V. Domenici (R-NM) in his role as Chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

“It is an exciting time for American natural gas and it is a real privilege to lead ANGA’s advocacy efforts to advance the greater use of this clean domestic energy source,” said Macchiarola. “I look forward to representing ANGA’s members in their essential role in energy policy discussions affecting natural gas use, development and production.”

Macchiarola earned his J.D. from New York University School of Law and a B.A. from the College of the Holy Cross.
