New Jersey Resources announced Sept. 27 the appointment of Ginger Richman as vice president of storage and transportation for NJR Midstream Co., a wholly owned subsidiary that owns and operates high-quality natural gas infrastructure assets around the country. The appointment will be effective next month, following the retirement of current vice president John Bremner.
“Ginger is a talented leader who leverages her vast experience and expertise to drive value at our company every day,” said Steve Westhoven, president and CEO of New Jersey Resources. “She is well respected throughout our organization and across the industry, and we are fortunate to have her as a part of our leadership team. In this new role, I have every confidence that Ginger will continue to serve our company and customers well.”
As vice president of storage and transportation (S&T), Richman will be responsible for leading the company’s storage and transportation business, including overseeing a team of more than 50 employees, developing and executing new and organic growth opportunities, driving operational and organizational efficiencies and overseeing all strategies related to NJR’s S&T assets.
Richman joined NJR in 2003 and has more than 35 years of experience in the natural gas industry. She presently serves as NJR’s vice president of NJR Midstream Services, leading Adelphia Gateway, NJR’s FERC-regulated natural gas transportation pipeline serving the greater Philadelphia region. In this role, Richman leads commercial operations and regulatory functions to support the effective management of day-to-day business activities, customer transactions and compliance.
Richman serves as a member of NJR’s Sustainability Council, IT Steering Committee and Benefits Administration Committee.
Richman will succeed Bremner, an accomplished industry veteran who has served as vice president of Midstream since October 2019, following his planned retirement next month.
“John joined our team at a critical time for our Storage and Transportation business and has been instrumental in growing and shaping that segment into what it is today,” said Westhoven. “I thank him for his service, dedication and accomplishments for our company, which have helped drive our organization forward, and wish him well in his retirement.”
