Southcross Holdings LP has appointed Bruce A. Williamson as executive chairman of the board of directors of the company’s general partner, Southcross Holdings GP LLC.
Williamson was previously appointed as an independent director of Southcross Energy Partners GP LLC, the general partner of Southcross Energy Partners LP (NYSE:SXE), in April 2013. He will continue to serve on the board of Southcross’ general partner; however, given his additional role as a director of the general partner of Holdings, Williamson will no longer be an independent director of Southcross’ general partner and as such will resign from the audit, compensation and conflicts committees of that board.
Williamson has more than 35 years of industry experience. Most recently, he was the chairman, president and CEO of Cleco Corp., an energy services company, from 2011 through April 2016, when Cleco was sold to a private investor group. Prior to Cleco, he was the chairman, president and CEO at Dynegy Inc. from 2002 through 2011. Prior to Dynegy, Williamson was the president and CEO at Duke Energy Global Markets and prior to that was vice president finance and corporate development for PanEnergy after spending 14 years in various capacities largely in exploration and production for Royal Dutch Shell. Williamson also currently serves on the board of directors of Questar Corp.
Williamson received a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Montana and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Houston.
