CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Governor Mark Gordon has recently announced Jennifer Thomson will serve as the Governor’s Major Project Development Manager.
In a release from the Governor’s Office, Thomson is now part of Gordon’s Administration’s Natural Resources policy team. The position is intended to keep Wyoming at the forefront of the energy frontier.
“I’m delighted to bring Jenn’s extensive experience and breadth of knowledge on natural resource issues, as well as her deep ties to Wyoming’s communities to our office,” Governor Gordon said in the release. “Her familiarity coordinating with federal, state, and Canadian agencies, as well as representatives from the private sector, make her ideally suited to serve as the Major Project Development Manager.”
