PATH FORWARD: Leslie Beyer Talks PESA, AESC Merger

The Petroleum Equipment & Services Association (PESA) and the Association of Energy Service Companies (AESC) announced Feb. 1 they will combine to create a new organization—the Energy Workforce & Technology Council.

Where will the new combined organization focus? What are the advantages for members of both associations? What will be different? Will the merger strengthen the industry’s representation and influence on the energy transition?

Leslie Beyer, former PESA president who will now serve as CEO of the merged association, answered these questions and more during a recent discussion with Hart Energy Editorial Director Len Vermillion. She touched on a wide range of topics, including the benefits of the merger for the 600 energy technology and service companies the Council will represent.
