On January 1, former U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry was appointed as a director of LE GP LLC, the general partner of Energy Transfer LP, according to a filing made by Energy Transfer to the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.

Perry is not currently expected to be named to any committees of the board of directors of LE GP, the filing stated.

After announcing his resignation in October 2019, Perry officially left his U.S. Secretary of Energy post in December. In a statement posted on social media site Twitter, Perry described serving in U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration as energy secretary as “the honor and privilege of a lifetime”.

 

 

Perry was the 14th Secretary of Energy. Prior to joining the administration, he served as the 47th governor of Texas. The former energy secretary resigned from the board of directors of Energy Transfer Partners LLC effective December 31, 2016, according to a filing from Energy Transfer Partners LP.

Energy Transfer describes itself as a premier provider of midstream energy services. The Texas-based company began in 1996 as a small intrastate natural gas pipeline operator and is now one of the largest and most diversified investment grade master limited partnerships in the United States, according to its website.
