The INGAA Foundation has announced that industry veteran Jason M. Goldstein will formally assume the role of executive director, following Richard Hoffmann’s retirement, effective Aug. 31.
Goldstein joined the INGAA Foundation in June to create a smooth transition. As executive director, Goldstein will be responsible for managing the foundation’s technical and economic studies, implementing its strategic plan and overseeing the planning and studies development process. He also will manage the foundation’s meetings and workshops.
Goldstein has worked in the environmental and natural gas industries since 1993. Prior to joining the foundation, Goldstein has held a variety of positions, including managing partner, chief operating officer, vice president, project manager, environmental inspector and field technician. He has worked with large consulting firms, pipeline operators and private developers of natural gas assets.
“I’m handing off the reins to a very talented and qualified person,” said Hoffmann, who will retire after 10 years as executive director of the Foundation and a distinguished 34-year career at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. “I’m looking forward to working with Jason over the next three months to ensure a seamless transition.”
Goldstein holds an MBA in finance and business law from Stern School of Business at New York University, an MS in environmental science from the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry at Syracuse, and a BS in biology from Keene State.
