Head of COGA stepping down

DENVER — The head of the Colorado Oil and Gas Association is stepping down after five years on the job.

The group said Monday that president and CEO Tisha Schuller will remain CEO until May.

A written announcement didn’t say why Schuller was leaving or what her plans were, and officials didn’t immediately respond to emails seeking more information.

Schuller oversaw the organization amid a boom in drilling that increased tensions between the industry and some local governments and residents as rigs set up near growing subdivisions.

The association said it would begin a search for her replacement.
