“There is no better steward of our nation’s domestic energy and mineral resources than Abby Hopper,” said Michael McGeady of CIANBRO Corporation.  “She is a dynamic leader who listens well, has considerable depth in energy policy and inspires others to bring forward substantive ideas.”

“With Abby at the head of the U.S. Bureau of Ocean and Energy Management, offshore wind policy in the United States will advance forward.  Abby will bring her vision, leadership and commitment to lead this important department.  I believe Abby will use her adept negotiating skills to force strategies that provide opportunities for the complementary oil and gas and offshore wind industries to work together in a manner that is responsible to the environment and grows the U.S. economy.” Said Liz Burdock, BizMDOSW’s Executive Director.
