Chris Coan, Vice President and General Manager of Business and Government Markets (BAGM)

His lively spirt is apparent in his day-to-day as he manages all mid-to-large commercial, industrial and institutional customers in the southeast. He believes that no matter where you are, there’s a way to find common ground with people – which is one reason our clients love him.

Freddy Cardozo, Vice President of Supply and Risk Management
As a college student, Freddy Cardozo witnessed the coup d'état of the government in his native country of Paraguay. When you survive the overthrow of your government, you learn a thing or two about negotiating. That’s just one of the many skills Freddy brings to the table at Gas South.
Today, Freddy is responsible for overseeing the wholesale natural gas supply, managing the transportation and storage assets of the company, legislative and regulatory affairs, and the risk management functions as Vice President of Supply and Risk Management at Gas South. His complex background allows him to successfully run all natural gas physical supply, scheduling, and trading in the wholesale market and ensuring its transportation and delivery to distribution companies throughout the southeast.
