Crestwood implements executive team changes

April 28, 2023 By    

Steven Dougherty, executive vice president and chief accounting officer at Crestwood Equity Partners, plans to leave the company to pursue other opportunities. He will continue to serve in his current role through the end of the second quarter to ensure an orderly transition of his responsibilities, the company says.

Upon Dougherty’s departure, Jeff Cathey, senior vice president and controller, will oversee the accounting department. Deana Werkowitch, senior vice president of audit, technology and implementation services, will oversee the internal audit and technology functions. Donna Schmidt, vice president of tax, will oversee the tax department. Casey Rosengarten, vice president of risk management, will oversee the risk management function.

“I am so proud of what we have built at Crestwood over the past 11 years,” Dougherty says. “It has been an incredible privilege to work with an extraordinary group of executives and an extremely talented group of accounting, IT, audit, tax and risk management professionals that will continue to advance Crestwood as a leader in the midstream industry. I am very excited about Crestwood’s transformation over the past several years and look forward to seeing what the future holds for the organization.”

Robert G. Phillips, founder, chairman and CEO of Crestwood, says Dougherty played a key role in building the company from its infancy.

“I would like to personally thank Steven, or ‘Doc’ as we fondly refer to him within the company, for his many years of service and leadership at Crestwood,” Phillips says. “Doc has been a core member of the Crestwood management team since 2012 and has developed a tremendous team of professionals within our accounting, financial reporting, tax, internal audit, IT and risk management functions. We are excited for the opportunity for many of these highly talented leaders to advance their careers and are confident they are well prepared to ensure a seamless transition. While we are sad to see Doc move on from Crestwood, we wish him all the best in his future endeavors and the next chapter in his life.”

Houston-based Crestwood is a master limited partnership that owns and operates midstream businesses in multiple shale resource plays across the United States.
