WASHINGTON, D.C. — The new chair of the National Ocean Industries Association board of directors is Paul Danos, owner and CEO of Danos. Starlee Sykes, senior vice president for the Gulf of Mexico and Canada for BP America, is vice chair. Danos and Sykes were appointed during the most recent NOIA board of directors meeting.

“Paul and Starlee, and the work they are spearheading with Danos and BP America, are a testament to the importance of the American offshore industry and the myriad of ways we lift society,” said NOIA President Erik Milito. “Whether our members are helping to produce lower carbon barrels in the Gulf of Mexico, building the rising American offshore wind sector, or scaling and deploying emerging energy segments like offshore carbon capture and storage, our members are at the vanguard of bettering the world. The world needs energy, jobs and growth in a way that drives innovation and emissions reductions efforts, and the American offshore can deliver. Paul and Starlee’s leadership will help NOIA continue to successfully advocate for the promise of American offshore energy.”

“NOIA plays a critical role in advancing the offshore energy industry,” said Danos. “Our NOIA member companies provide quality jobs for Americans as well as affordable, sustainably-produced energy for our country. I look forward to working with the NOIA team and with Starlee to continue to provide innovative solutions that can strengthen America’s energy security.”
