KPMG LLP has named Regina Mayor its new global sector head of energy and natural resources practice, a job she will perform from Houston.
Mayor, who has been with KPMG since 2006, previously headed the energy and natural resources practice for the U.S.
Her new role will have her focused on oil and gas services across the globe, and traveling as a speaker and to meet with clients. As of early October, Mayor had already traveled to Australia and Mexico, and she said she is planning on making future trips for conferences in Japan and India.
Mayor said she also will be working on a very American problem at home: What she calls the demonization of the oil and gas industry. Americans' fractious relationship with the oil and gas industry — particularly in recent years with the increased use of hydraulic fracturing — is not something she sees often in other countries.
"It's a much maligned industry, unfairly. ... It is kind of a demonized industry," Mayor said, adding that oil and gas companies are working more on their public image. "I am seeing the industry pulling together to take back control of the dialogue."

We're so thrilled for Regina and are honored to have the a part of Pink Petro. We believe like Regina believes that it's time the industry own the story. It's why Pink Petro is a place to give women and men a place to connect, develop and grow their knowledge, share with other parts of the sector, and elevate voices.
Help me give two thumbs up for Regina in her new global role.
