Remember back in May when Bill desRosiers joined the Cabot team? Well if you don’t, he wrote a blog post about it. Today we’ll check in on what he’s been doing for the past three months and how well he’s enjoying his time at Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation. Bill joined our External Affairs team after a two-year position as a Field Director for Energy In Depth: Northeast Marcellus Initiative. He brought with him a broad knowledge of industry data and resources and a solid network of natural gas supporter and community leaders state-wide.
This network came in great handy when Bill signed on to help Brittany Thomas and many others to plan the Cabot Community Picnic, which took place last weekend at the Harford Fairgrounds in Susquehanna, Pa. As a Northeastern Pa., native for eight years, Bill proved instrumental in securing many of our community partners for the picnic and meeting with industry exhibitors in the area. Today, Bill will answer some of our questions about what he’s been up to at Cabot.
Q: So Bill, what do you do all day, anyway? One of my favorite duties is giving site tours to groups who want to learn more about the industry. I organize and direct people to visit some of Cabot’s wellpads in Susquehanna County and have the opportunity to address their questions and educate them about our operations. I also participate in as many community events here as possible on behalf of Cabot. Cabot is a company dedicated to the interests of Susquehanna County, but the rest of our External Affairs team resides in the Pittsburgh Office. Part of my job is going to dinners, fundraisers, golf tournaments and other community events. (Not too shabby!) My overriding duty, in all that I do is education. Whether it’s in a classroom setting or informally at a community event, I try to answer questions about the industry and Cabot when people ask. A lot of misinformation is spread about this industry and I always strive to correct it. Q: What do you like about your position and working at Cabot? Every day is a different challenge. Working in the Dimock field office, I’ve realized that I don’t exactly have a typical desk job. I get to interact with numerous people and I get to see the results that my efforts produce. Q:What makes Cabot different from other companies you’ve worked with? You would think that a corporation might be stuffy and serious all the time, but the atmosphere within the Cabot is very laid back and welcoming. 9) What do you like about the Susquehanna County community and the people of the region? Montrose and Tunkhannock have a renaissance motif about them because of gas development. When I first started college at Misericordia University eight years ago, both Montrose and Tunkhannock were stereotyped as economically deprived areas. Now, each has a booming economy with plenty of new business all over. Plus, most of the people are happy.
