Tim Charters Promoted to Vice President at National Ocean Industries Association
Washington, D.C. – Tim Charters has been promoted to Vice President of Governmental and Political Affairs at the National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA). Tim joined NOIA as a Senior Director in June of 2017, after serving as Vice President of Governmental and Regulatory Affairs at the National Stripper Well Association.
“Tim’s extensive Congressional and industry experience in energy and natural resources issues serves NOIA well, as evidenced by his diligent work this past year on diverse issues facing our member companies in both the offshore oil and gas and wind sectors. Tim hit the water swimming, so to speak, and has made key strategic and policy decisions to the benefit of the offshore energy industry,” said NOIA President Randall Luthi.
Tim has nearly 20 years of Congressional experience including roles as Staff Director of the Energy and Mineral Resources Subcommittee of the House Natural Resources Committee under Chairman Doc Hastings (R-WA), as Director of Policy Coordination for the full Natural Resources Committee, and as Legislative Director to Rep. Steve Pearce (R-NM).
Prior to that, Charters owned and operated his own lobbying company, Charters and Company, after having served nearly ten years for multiple members of the California Delegation.
NOIA is the only national trade association representing all segments of the offshore industry with an interest in the exploration and production of both traditional and renewable energy resources on the nation’s outer continental shelf. NOIA’s mission is to secure reliable access and a fair regulatory and economic environment for the companies that develop the nation’s valuable offshore energy resources in an environmentally responsible manner. The NOIA membership comprises about 250 companies engaged in business activities ranging from producing to drilling, engineering to marine and air transport, offshore construction to equipment manufacture and supply, telecommunications to finance and insurance, and renewable energy.
