The South Dakota Oil and Gas Association named Adam Martin as the Executive Director Monday. The association was started in 2012 and Martin says the organization is committed to maintaining a positive business climate for South Dakota’s oil and gas industry. Martin also says the organization is beneficial for the economy, so it won’t depend on outside resources.

"To have us to become a more sustainable future if we don’t depend on areas like Iraq which is literally in turmoil right now and we have a really good opportunity to take on the natural resources and the shale resources that we have in our area and have that become sustainable for not only the United States but also our local economy here,” says Martin.
Martin has over 20 years of experience in high level management and business to business networking. Martin says as Executive Director he hopes to build up the association’s base and build relationships not only in the state but in the Midwest region.
