Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon has announced an addition to his Administration’s Natural Resources policy team. Jennifer Thomson will serve as the Governor’s Major Project Development Manager. The position, developed and funded through a joint collaboration between Governor Gordon’s Office and the Wyoming Legislature, is intended to keep Wyoming at the forefront of the energy frontier. Gordon said Thomson is a Wyoming native whose experience blends key aspects of the private corporate world with a fluent knowledge of federal and state regulatory processes.
According to information from the Governor’s Office, Thomson’s position focuses on rejuvenating a modernized nuclear industry in Wyoming, but her responsibilities will extend to coordinating other significant energy and natural resources projects. These may include pipelines, carbon capture, hydrogen development, critical materials and rare earth elements, and the FE Warren “Sentinel” missile initiative.
