The Lycoming College Institute for Management Studies will welcome Adam Sieminski, chief executive of the U.S. Energy Information Administration, as a part of its James W. Harding Executive Speaker Series on Thursday, Oct. 22 at 7:30 p.m. in the Mary L. Welch Honors Hall, at the corner of Basin and Fourth streets. The event is free and open to the public.

Sieminski will discuss long-term projections of U.S. energy supply, demand, and prices in his presentation, “Global Energy Outlook.”

Sieminski is an internationally recognized expert on global energy markets and was nominated by President Obama and approved unanimously by the U.S. Senate for his current position at the EIA.

Prior to the EIA, he was the senior director for energy and environment on the staff of the National Security Council (NSC). The NSC is the President’s principle forum for considering national security and foreign policy matters with his senior national security advisors and cabinet officials.

Sieminski’s time on the council was preceded by his work for Deutsche Bank, where he served as chief energy economist with the bank’s global commodities research and trading units. Drawing on extensive industry, government, and academic sources, he forecasted energy market trends and wrote on a variety of topics involving energy economics, climate change, geopolitics, and commodity prices. He also served as the director and energy strategist for Deutsche Bank’s global oil and gas equity team.

The James W. Harding Executive Speaker Series is named for James W. Harding, a 1938 graduate of Lycoming College and native of Montoursville, Pa. Harding was an executive with Kemper Insurance. As the result of a grant from the James S. Kemper foundation to endow the series, students have the opportunity to meet and network with some of America's top business executives from numerous internationally-recognized companies and firms.
