Last week, Gov. Jeff Landry chose Tyler Gray to lead the Department of Natural Resources. Gray most recently served as corporate secretary for Placid Refining Co. and before that was president and general counsel to Louisiana Mid-Continent Oil and Gas Association.

An attorney, Gray previously worked within the Department of Natural Resources and its Office of Conservation.

“We are currently experiencing an unprecedented time of political alignment from Baton Rouge to Washington, D.C.,” Gray says in a statement from Landry’s transition team. “I eagerly anticipate serving under the leadership of Governor-elect Landry and contributing to the improvement of our state, aiming for unparalleled success during his administration.”
