Moxley succeeds Mark Sutton as the head of the nearly 100-year-old trade organization. Sutton, who announced his retirement after 37 years with the association, will remain in office through the summer to help with the transition, says GPA Midstream.

“Joel is a seasoned and trusted leader and is uniquely qualified to drive strategic prioritization for GPA Midstream in our ever-changing industry,” says Bill Ward of Superior Pipeline, GPA Midstream chairman of the board. “With more than 30 years of industry experience and a long history of leadership roles within the association, Joel can step right into action. On behalf of the executive committee that made the selection, we have full confidence in Joel’s ability to build on the association’s advocacy, technical and educational strengths.”

Moxley served as GPA Midstream chairman of the board from 2013-15. Under his leadership, the association opened a Washington, D.C., office to increase the midstream industry’s involvement in federal legislative and regulatory issues. He also led a strategic review of the association from 2016-17, resulting in key changes to the organization. For his service, the association awarded Moxley with a Citation for Service Award in 2018.

Prior to the appointment, Moxley served as chief commercial officer for Southcross Energy Partners/Southcross Holding from 2015-19. He was responsible for overseeing the company’s gas gathering, gas treating, gas processing, natural gas liquids (NGL) fractionation, and gas and NGL marketing assets in Texas, Mississippi and Alabama.

Prior to Southcross, Moxley led Crestwood Equity Partners as senior vice president, operations services, and served as COO for Crestwood Midstream Partners. He also has held executive roles focused on commercial activities within Crosstex Energy, Enterprise Products Partners, El Paso Corp. and PG&E Corp.
