The National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) has appointed and approved the 2024-2025 term of the NOIA Board of Directors and Executive Committee. Jon Landes, President, Subsea of TechnipFMC has been elected as the NOIA Chair and Joe Leimkuhler, Chief Operating Officer of Beacon Offshore Energy, as the incoming NOIA Vice Chair.

NOIA President Erik Milito said, “We are at a critical juncture where it's imperative to ensure that energy policy from Washington, D.C. does not hinder American energy production. Whether it's advocating for offshore energy reform in Congress, providing greater certainty for oil and gas and wind lease sales, or implementing the first federal offshore carbon sequestration rules, Washington holds the key to shaping the future of domestic offshore energy development and production. With Jon and Joe at the helm, armed with their extensive expertise and unwavering dedication, we are poised to champion the interests of our industry. Together, we eagerly anticipate collaborating closely to advocate for the continued growth and prosperity of American offshore energy.

“We also must thank outgoing NOIA chair Paul Danos for his leadership and commitment in steadfastly representing the nation’s offshore sector.”

Landes said, "NOIA serves as a crucial nexus, uniting the diverse array of energy companies that comprise the offshore energy sector. Our industry's success translates into high-quality jobs for American workers, the provision of affordable and lower carbon energy for our nation, and the development of environmental solutions that can enhance our communities. I eagerly anticipate partnering with the dedicated NOIA staff and am enthusiastic about deepening our collaboration with Joe to explore novel avenues for advocating on behalf of our industry. Together, we aim to champion policy solutions that bolster America's energy landscape.”

Leimkuhler said, “I am deeply honored to step into the role of NOIA's Vice Chair, and I am thrilled to collaborate closely with Jon to advance the organization's crucial mission. This is a pivotal moment for offshore energy policy, and NOIA's membership is uniquely positioned to spearhead transformative change in the energy sector. I am eager to contribute to our collective efforts to safeguard our industry's ability to meet the world's energy demands.”
