DENVER, December 6, 2018 - Colorado Petroleum Council Executive Director Tracee Bentley was named today as a member of the Denver Business Journal's 2018-2019 'Who's Who in Energy' class.

'The Colorado Petroleum Council is proud to advocate for the 232,900 men and women whose livelihoods are supported by the natural gas and oil industry,' said Bentley. 'What makes this industry special is its people and their hard work and service in the communities they call home. This recognition is theirs.

'The coming months are sure to be critical in the industry's effort to provide unparalleled opportunity to Coloradans who work in natural gas and oil, as well as those who work in supporting industries. We thank the Denver Business Journal for this wonderful acknowledgment, and look forward to working collaboratively in 2019 and beyond.'

The Denver Business Journal chose 100 people to be profiled based on a combination of industry outreach, internal research and open nominations. On December 6, 2018, the Denver Business Journal hosted a reception for this year's honorees, at which Bentley served on a panel alongside DCP Midstream President and CEO Wouter van Kampen, moderated by Denver Business Journal President and Publisher Kevin Pitts.
