Randall Luthi has an extensive knowledge of the energy industry that he will bring back to the State of Wyoming.

Monday, May 20, Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon announced that Randall Luthi will serve as the state’s Chief Energy Advisor.

“I’m excited that Randall Luthi is joining my administration.” said Gov. Gordon. “His knowledge of Wyoming’s energy economy and his experience working with our Federal partners in Washington are assets that will benefit our team going forward.”
