New Executive Director for API’s Massachusetts Petroleum Council

The American Petroleum Institute has promoted Steve Dodge to Executive Director of the Massachusetts Petroleum Council (MPC). Dodge had previously served as Associate Director of MPC.

“Steve has been a talented and respected advocate for the oil and natural gas industry in his 17 years of service with API,” said API Senior Director of State Government Relations Rolf Hanson. “He understands that energy is essential for all facets of our daily lives, from powering national, state and local economies to fuelling the family vehicle and heating our homes.”

Steve Dodge joined the Massachusetts Petroleum Council, a division of API, in November 1997 as an Associate Director, responsible for lobbying activities throughout New England.

“I’m proud to take on this important role in an industry that is committed to safe and reliable delivery of abundant and affordable American energy,” said Dodge. “Energy is fundamental to our society, and thanks to American innovation and entrepreneurial spirit, our nation stands among the world’s leaders in energy production. The US can remain a global energy leader for generations to come, but only if we get our state, regional and federal energy policy right today.”

Prior to joining API in 1997, Steve Dodge served from 1993 to 1997 as Legislative Director for Govs. Weld and Cellucci. Dodge also served as Assistant Director of Technical Services for the state’s Division of Local Services under the Department of Revenue. Before joining state government in 1985, Steve served as a news anchor and reporter for radio station WTAG in Worcester. Dodge graduated from Holy Cross College in Worcester, receiving a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History.
