BISMARCK — The North Dakota Petroleum Council (NDPC) has named Brady Pelton as its new Vice President and General Counsel. The Vice President position was previously held by Kari Cutting, who retired from the organization in June 2021.
Pelton has worked as the organization’s General Counsel and Director of Government Affairs since September 2017. In his role as Director of Government Affairs, Pelton advocated for NDPC and its members by leading legislative and regulatory efforts and working with stakeholders to address local, state, and tribal issues.
“NDPC is excited for Brady to step into this new role, take on new challenges, and continue to represent NDPC and our members well in this new capacity,” said NDPC President Ron Ness. “His valuable personal and professional experience has been a tremendous asset in building strong stakeholder relationships and advancing North Dakota’s energy industry.”
Pelton holds bachelor’s degrees in political science and public administration from the University of North Dakota and a Juris Doctor from the University of North Dakota School of Law, where he graduated with honors in May 2017.
