Regulatory Issues and Emerging Uses Prompt Need for Position


MCLEAN, VIRGINIA –The Compressed Gas Association has hired Paul Pflieger as Director of Marketing and Communications.

Given the huge advances and applications for hydrogen, major regulatory shifts, the tenuous U.S. helium situation, the impact and importance of medical and food gases as North America emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic, and CGA’s expanded focus on advocacy and public policy, the Association hired Paul to position CGA as the leading authority for safety information about the industrial, medical, and food gases industries.

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

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

Paul has his BA in Marketing and Communications from American University. He lives in Springfield, VA.
