Dave Spigelmyer – Professional Overview

David J. Spigelmyer is currently the President and Executive director of the Pittsburgh, PA-based Marcellus Shale Coalition (MSC), the region’s largest shale development trade association. 

David was instrumental in the MSC’s 2008 founding and has been involved in every facet of the organization’s initiatives and structure from the very beginning of this effort. He has served as the organization’s chairman, vice-chairman and as lead of its legislative committee, but most importantly, he has worked in the “trenches”. Since the MSC’s founding, Dave’s input and contributions have led to outstanding achievements in the areas of Regulatory Reform and Governmental Cooperation. His ongoing leadership roles have made an amazing difference to the value and reputation of his own company but to all those of the entire industry in this region. He has worked tirelessly on behalf of the MSC’s approximately 300 member companies with elected leaders, regulators and the civic community to advance responsible shale development and the overall enhancement of the region’s economy and environment.

Prior to taking on his current role, Dave’s long-term commitment to the industry was evident as he served as Vice President of Government Affairs for Chesapeake Energy Corporation’s Appalachia division, where he was responsible for government relations, regulatory policy, stakeholder engagement and communications efforts. Prior to Chesapeake, he served in similar roles at EQT Corporation and Dominion Resources and held other energy industry-related positions in New York State as well as in Washington, DC. During his tenure in all of these positions, Dave’s phenomenal leadership skills allowed those companies to advance their respective strategies and operational plans, but his open assistance to all of those inside and outside the industry set him apart from his peers.
