Southwestern Energy Names Cathy Kehr as New Chairman of the Board

Cathy Kehr

We sometimes hear, usually from industry critics, that there’s not enough women in oil and gas jobs. That women have a hard time breaking through “the glass ceiling.” That o&g is “a man’s world.” Don’t tell that to Cathy Kehr. Cathy was just named the new Chairman (or Chairwoman) of the Board at one of the biggest drillers in the Marcellus/Utica–Southwestern Energy. The current Chairman, Steve Mueller, is retiring in May. Mueller was previously not only Chairman, but also CEO. Mueller announced in January he was leaving his post as CEO at that point, and subsequently retiring from the board in May (see Southwestern Energy Gets New CEO – What’s Ahead for 2016?). Bill Way, who was just President, is now President & CEO. Bill runs the company. Bill’s boss will be Cathy. She comes from the Wall Street/money side of the isle–previously a portfolio manager for one of the world’s largest investment management, The Capital Group. Three cheers for Cathy!…
