The Michigan Oil and Gas Association (MOGA) is pleased to announce the selection of Jason Geer as its new President and Chief Executive Officer. Geer joins MOGA having served nearly 10 years as the Michigan Chamber of Commerce’s Director of Energy & Environmental Policy.
“We are very pleased to welcome Jason as President and CEO of the Michigan Oil and Gas Association,” said Brian Dorr, MOGA board chair. “We have worked extensively with Jason over many years. He is a professional and highly regarded advocate on energy issues who has been a great ally to Michigan’s home state producers. Jason’s strong background in energy and environmental policy, combined with his experience as part of Michigan’s leading business association, ensures MOGA and its independent oil and natural gas producer members will continue to be in good hands.”
Previously, Geer served as director of government affairs for the Midland Area Chamber of Commerce before joining the Michigan Chamber where he led advocacy and policy development efforts. Geer began his career in the office of former Michigan Congressman Dave Camp. He has both policy and political experience as part of his now 18-year career.
“I’m excited to join MOGA where I look forward to building on the economic success story of Michigan’s home-state producers – people who care deeply about their employees, communities, our environment and contributing to Michigan’s energy needs,” said Geer. “I admire the entrepreneurial spirit of MOGA members, many of whom are family businesses that span several generations. I can think of no better group of people with whom to work and no better association to have the opportunity to lead.”
Geer holds a B.A. in Political Science from Saginaw Valley State University. He succeeds Erin McDonough, who led MOGA since 2014.
