Empire Petroleum, an oil and gas company with current producing assets in Texas, Louisiana, North Dakota, Montana and New Mexico, announced the appointment of Vice Admiral Andrew Lewis as Board Member, effective immediately. Vice Admiral Lewis replaces Anthony Kamin, who has served Empire as a Director since December 2016 and recently as Co-Chairman of the Board.

Vice Admiral Andrew Lewis was raised in Los Altos, California, and is a 1985 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy. He was designated a Naval Aviator in April 1987 and has flown over 100 combat missions, accumulating over 5,300 flight hours and 1,100 carrier landings.

Lewis previously served as the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Operations, Plans and Strategy, vice director for Operations, and director of Fleet Training at Fleet Forces Command. His command tours included Carrier Strike Group 12, Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center, Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 3, Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 106, and Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 15. In 2018, Lewis was named Commander of the U.S. Second Fleet and NATO Joint Force Command Norfolk.

Following retirement from a 36-year military career in 2021, Lewis joined Business Executives for National Security. As Senior Vice President of Policy and Projects, Vice Admiral Lewis has worked collaboratively with business executives and leaders in the federal government’s national security enterprise to apply best business practices in addressing the nation’s most pressing security challenges.

“The entire Board is thrilled to have Vice Admiral Lewis join us. His experience re-establishing the Second Fleet in 2018 has been said to have been the military equivalent of establishing two successful startup companies responsible for maritime security in the Atlantic and into the Arctic. His experience should prove invaluable to our Board,” said Tommy Pritchard, Chief Executive Officer.

“We want to thank Tony for being an integral part of the Company since 2016. He has been instrumental in the company’s tremendous growth and we truly appreciate his leadership. We wish Tony the very best in his future endeavors,” said Mike Morrisett, President. “I also want to extend a warm welcome to Vice-Admiral Lewis as a new member of the Board of Directors.”
