George H. Schofield, the chairman, chief executive officer and president of Zurn Industries Inc. in Erie, Pa., has been elected to the board of directors of National Fuel Gas Co., the Buffalo-based utility said Thursday.
Schofield was elected to a new seat on National Fuel's board of directors, which now will have nine members.
Schofield's interim term will expire in February, but he has been nominated for re-election to a full three-year term during the company's annual shareholders meeting on Feb. 21.
Schofield, 61, joined Zurn in 1985 as president and chief operating officer and was elected chief executive officer later that year. He was elected chairman in 1986.
