    Charlie Schliebs serves again in 2019 as the volunteer Conference Chair and Emcee of the Northeast Petrochemical Conference. Charlie is a co-founder and Managing Director of Stone Pier Capital Advisors, a Pittsburgh-based boutique M&A advisory firm and investment bank serving energy companies in the Appalachian Basin. Charlie has advised on deals in oilfield services, unconventional and conventional oil and gas, petrochemical, LNG, midstream gathering and pipelines, compression, processing and fractionation, renewable methane, energy construction, nuclear services, waste coal, wind and solar.

    Charlie is annually named to "Who’s Who in Energy" by American City Business Journals, and is a national Judge for the Oil & Gas Awards. He is a regular speaker, moderator, panelist or conference leader with respect to energy topics and a judge for energy technology competitions. Following his serving as a member of the 2014-2015 Transition Team for then newly-elected Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, Charlie became recognized as a leading critic of Governor Wolf’s annual proposals to make Pennsylvania the only state in the nation with both an impact tax and a severance tax on unconventional natural gas. His energy-related editorials and articles have been published in Marcellus Drilling News and Natural Gas Now as well as his own firm’s energy newsletter.

    As a founding Board member and officer of the non-profit Pittsburgh Energy Innovation Center Institute, Charlie has spearheaded a number of energy-related initiatives, including workforce development training involving some of the largest exploration and production companies in the Marcellus/Utica region, and also with respect to preparing minorities and women for energy construction jobs at projects such as the new Shell Polymers Petrochemical Complex in Beaver County, PA. Through a second non-profit that Charlie co-founded, the Huddle Up for Kids Foundation, Charlie works with leading energy or energy-related companies such as Chevron, Shell Chemical and MSA Safety, and retired pro football players, to raise money for children’s charities in the Appalachian Basin.
