SAN DIEGO, Feb. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Sempra Infrastructure, a subsidiary of Sempra (NYSE: SRE) (BMV:SRE), announced today its president and former U.S. Secretary of Energy, Dan Brouillette, has been elected to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's U.S.-Japan Business Council (USJBC) board of directors.
"I look forward to working closely with other world-class companies, as well as the U.S. and Japanese governments, as we work to advance the two countries' commercial relationships to help promote the use of secure, clean energy sources and shape transparent trade rules, standards and regulations," said Brouillette. "Japan played a critical role in developing the United States' natural gas resources by being one of the earliest and largest offtakers of U.S. LNG capacity. As the second largest LNG importer today, identifying synergies between our two great nations will help further the use of cleaner natural gas around the world."
Additionally, Brouillette will also serve as the new co-chair for the USJBC's Energy & Infrastructure Working Group, which includes representatives from Chevron, Honeywell and ExxonMobil, among other multinational companies.
USJBC is comprised of some of the leading U.S. companies that place a high priority on doing business in Japan and is one of the primary U.S.-based business organizations promoting stronger economic ties between the two countries. The USJBC's core mission is to advance U.S.-Japan business and government ties, to identify and expand new opportunities, and to facilitate growth across sectors including digital economy, energy and infrastructure, financial services, healthcare innovation, travel, tourism, and transportation.
Brouillette was named president of Sempra Infrastructure in November 2021. Prior to joining Sempra, Brouillette served as the 15th United States Secretary of Energy and the President's primary advisor on energy and nuclear weapons matters. In the private sector, Brouillette held extensive key leadership roles at USAA and Ford Motor Company.
