Gaglio is senior vice president and COO for Piedmont Natural Gas, Duke Energy's natural gas business unit. "Victor brings a wealth of practical experience in pipeline company man- agement and operations to his role as the Foundation's new chairman," said Don Santa, INGAA Foundation president and CEO. "The combination of his technical background and proven leadership skills make Victor well suited to lead the organizations membership in assuring a safe and reliable natural gas transmission system." The INGAA Foundation brings together more than 200 pipeline operators and contractors—including construction companies, pipe mills, engineering companies, consultants, environmental and safety groups and others—to facilitate the efficient construction, safe operation and reliable main- tenance of the North American natural gas pipeline system. As chairman, Gaglio said he would work to further the mission of the INGAA Foundation by encouraging more meaningful collaboration between the Foundation mem- bership and the end-users it serves. Gaglio has more than 35 years of experience in the natu- ral gas industry. Prior to joining Piedmont in 2012, Gaglio served as senior vice president of operations for NiSource Gas Transmission and Storage, where he was responsible for the company's field operations and maintenance, storage, land services and health, safety and environmental programs. Also, on Nov. 4, the board elected Lauren O'Donnell, vice president, oil and gas market sector, for TRC Solutions, as vice chairwoman. "I am honored and excited by the opportunity to lead IN- GAA," Yardley said. "These are critical times for our industry, and INGAA's role as a champion for natural gas infrastructure is more important than ever. We must continue to build and maintain public confidence in the safety and reliability of our pipelines." At Enbridge, Yardley leads the company's natural gas pipe- line and midstream business across North America. He is also the president and chairman of the Board of Spectra Energy Part- ners. Previously Yardley was president of Spectra Energy's U.S. Transmission and Storage business. Spectra was acquired by En- bridge in 2017. INGAA's board also elected Stanley Chapman III, a Trans- Canada executive vice president and president of the company's U.S. natural gas pipelines, as first vice chairman and David Slater, a DTE Midstream executive vice president and president of the company's gas storage and pipelines, as second vice chairman.
