DENVER, July 25, 2019 – The Colorado Petroleum Council today announced that Carrie Hackenberger has been promoted to associate director of the Colorado Petroleum Council, API’s Colorado division.

“Carrie has been a staunch advocate for the industry since she joined this team in 2016 and she was a rock for the industry during the last legislative session, stepping up to lead in ways that went above and beyond her job description and years of experience,” said Lynn Granger, executive director of the Colorado Petroleum Council. “We couldn’t be more thrilled for her to take on this new role as she is truly an emerging leader within the natural gas and oil industry.”

In her new role, Hackenberger will work closely with Granger in leading Colorado Petroleum Council’s legislative and policy efforts across Colorado.

This past year, Hackenberger helped guide the team during Colorado’s tumultuous legislative session and CPC’s executive director transition. Hackenberger joined CPC in September 2016 as its operations manager. Over the years, her role evolved to include policy and regulatory analysis, social media and sponsorship management, member engagement, and event coordination.

Hackenberger holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Colorado State University as well as a Master of Science from University of Colorado Denver’s Global Energy Management program. Hackenberger anticipates receiving her Master of Business Administration from the University of Colorado Denver in 2020.
