The Compressed Gas Association (CGA) has appointed Paul Pflieger as Director of Marketing and Communications.

Formalising the appointment on Thursday (21st July), the association said it Pflieger will help position the CGA as the leading authority for safety information about the industrial, medical, and food gases industries.

This comes at a time of huge advances for hydrogen, major regulatory shifts, the tenuous US helium situation, the impact and importance of medical and food gases as the US emerges from Covid-19, and CGA’s expanded focus on advocacy and public policy.

Pflieger joins the association from the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) Association where, as Director of Communications, he led all communications and marketing efforts.

Rich Gottwald, President and CEO of the CGA, said, “We are thrilled Paul has joined us at CGA. His background with The Employee Stock Ownership Association and his experience with public relations will make him a strong addition to the already amazing team here at CGA.”
