Stephen C. Thompson, Senior Vice President of Chesapeake Utilities Corporation, has been elected to serve on The Nature Conservancy of Delaware board for a four-year term.
Thompson is a registered professional engineer in Delaware and also President of Eastern Shore Natural Gas Company, the Company’s natural gas transmission subsidiary. He graduated with dual B.S. degrees in Chemical Engineering and Chemistry, respectively, from Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY and St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY in 1983. He has served on the Delaware Governor’s Energy Advisory Council since 2005.
“Steve’s experience includes 27 years working in the utilities industry and a childhood spent on a dairy farm in upstate New York,” noted Roger Jones, State Director. “He is a great addition to our talented and dedicated board, and I look forward to working with him.”
Thompson grew up in Lisbon, NY, close to the Canadian border and the St. Lawrence River. “Growing up on a farm helped me appreciate the importance of preserving land. My appreciation for the preservation of land, coupled with my own personal desire to give back to the community, led to my decision to become more involved with the work of the Conservancy,” noted Mr. Thompson. Thompson and his wife Shelly have two daughters, Holly, 19, and Lauren, 23. They live in Wyoming, Delaware.
