Tom Skains addresses CFA Society members in Charlotte, NC

Tom Skains, chairman of the AGA and chairman, president and CEO of Piedmont Natural Gas Company, addressed both the Charlotte and Raleigh financial communities this week.  He told attendees that in the current financial and economic crisis, natural gas has the opportunity to help revitalize our economy, fight global climate change, and secure America’s energy future.

In Charlotte, Skains spoke to an audience of over 90 members of the CFA N.C. Society, an association of investment professionals.  He spoke to the group about the benefits of investing in natural gas – the cleanest of all fossil fuels — saying, “Our industry believes that in the current financial and economic crisis natural gas has a great opportunity to help revitalize our economy, to help fight global climate change, and to help enhance America’s energy security.”  Skains concluded by telling the group that he also believes that in the current economic situation, natural gas utilities continue to be an attractive and wise investment opportunity.
