The Board of Directors of the American Coal Council (ACC) announced the upcoming retirement of Betsy Monseu, who has led ACC as CEO for the past nine years. Monseu’s long tenure in the coal industry has included roles in the electric utility, railroad, and mining sectors before being named ACC CEO in 2013. Under Monseu’s leadership, ACC took on a heightened advocacy role and achieved numerous milestones including the merger of the Coal Trading Association into ACC. The ACC Board has formed a Search Committee for the selection of Monseu’s successor.
