A member of Calumet Specialty Products Partners’ board retired on March 31. George C. Morris III had served on the board of the Indianapolis-based company since 2009. He has a background in investment banking with a focus on the energy sector, and has also served as president of Houston-based Morris Energy Advisors Inc. since 2009.
“I’m thankful for the opportunity I’ve had to serve on the board of directors for the last eight years, but my other responsibilities have become too great for me to be able to continue to fulfill the requirements of my position,” Morris said in a prepared statement.
Calumet produces specialty hydrocarbon and fuel products, including oils, waxes, asphalt, solvents, gasoline, diesel fuel and jet fuel.
“While we don’t have any immediate plans to fill George’s position on the board of directors of Calumet’s general partner, we do expect to add talent to the board in the future that will bring strong industry experience and knowledge over the long term,” said Calumet CEO Tim Go.•
