Last week, the Ohio Petroleum Council named its new executive director.

Tapped was Chris Zeigler, the current chief of staff for U.S. Rep. Pat Tiberi, R-Columbus.

Zeigler will start on March 11.

Zeigler will end his 19 years in Congress on March 8 to replace former executive director Terry Fleming, who headed the council for more than 25 years before resigning.
