GDF SUEZ Gas North America (GSGNA), the owner and operator of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving terminal in Everett, Massachusetts, announced today that it has named Tony Scaraggi as its new vice president of Operations in charge of overall management of the Everett LNG Terminal, effective March 21.

Most recently, he was director of Operations, Maintenance, and Regulatory Affairs for Distrigas. Prior to joining Distrigas in January 2001 as the manager of Engineering, Scaraggi held the position of Principal Engineer at KeySpan Energy (now National Grid).

“During Tony’s 13 years with Distrigas, he has demonstrated a broad understanding of natural gas and LNG,” said Frank Katulak, president and CEO of GSGNA and former president and chief operating officer of Distrigas. He added,“Just as importantly, he has been key to Distrigas’s success in directing efforts focused on the terminal’s safe, secure and reliable operation. I have worked closely with Tony during that time and am confident of his ability to move the company forward as we continue to play a major role in New England’s energy landscape and tap new markets for LNG.”

Scaraggi holds a Bachelor of Engineering and a Master of Engineering in Chemical Engineering from Manhattan College and a Masters of Business Administration in Finance from Baruch College.

GSGNA is a subsidiary of GDF SUEZ Energy North America, which manages a range of energy businesses in the United States, Mexico and Canada. These businesses include electricity generation and cogeneration, natural gas and LNG distribution and sales, asset-based trading and origination, and retail energy sales and related services. The LNG-receiving terminal in Everett currently serves most of the natural gas utilities in New England and key power producers, helping to meet New England’s natural gas demand through both pipeline deliveries and an average of 10,000 truck deliveries of LNG each year.

Fernando Fernandez
MAIP 1985 Alumnus
Chief Client Officer
d exposito & Partners

Fernando’s account management career started with MAIP in 1985. That summer’s one-of-a-kind experience was the beginning of what has become a life-long passion. Fernando was offered to join the advertising agency he interned with right after graduating college. A few years into it, he discovered his true calling was to specialize in the Multicultural arena and, specifically, the Hispanic market. Since then and for more than 25 years now, he has dedicated his time to Hispanic marketing and advertising.

Over the years, he has worked on the agency side with multiple clients across various industries and categories in the Multicultural space. Companies such as AT&T, Campbell’s, Citibank, Lincoln-Mercury, Mazda, McDonald’s, Sears, Unilever and U.S. Census. His professional journey has taken him from an Assistant Account Executive, working his way up the account management ladder into Senior Vice President and General Manager titles at large and multi-national agencies, to, more recently, testing his entrepreneurial skills successfully at a start-up Multicultural advertising agency.

Throughout his career, he’s been credited with many effective programs in the areas of advertising, direct marketing, public relations, promotions and event marketing.

Today, several career life-long colleagues are his partners at d expósito & Partners
(www.newamericanagency.com) where he oversees account management to ensure quality, responsiveness and effectiveness across multiple clients.

Fernando graduated with a Marketing degree from Manhattan College in Riverdale, NY.
