Now this is fun: Jack Gerard, API’s president and CEO, is on Instagram, providing an inside look at his work leading the country’s largest oil and natural gas trade association and his energy advocacy efforts – but also other stuff.


Such as his large, enthusiastic family …


His western roots as a native Idahoan …


And his love for scouting …


Here’s what Jack posted about the photo above:

"Very proud of Leo, Nick, and Steven Cantos who reached the rank of Eagle Scout together. This was the first time blind triplets have done so in the @boyscoutsofamerica's 107-year history. The boys did so without receiving any special considerations. I've known them and their adoptive father Ollie, who is also blind, for years and was honored to celebrate their achievement last night. #boyscouts #boyscoutsofamerica"

Jack has been active on Instagram for a few weeks and clearly enjoys it. Check his feed. Even better: follow along: @JackGerardAPI
