PITTSBURGH, Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of MSA (NYSE: MSA), the global leader in safety products and systems that help protect workers and facilities, today announced that Rebecca B.

"We feel very fortunate to be able to add a person of Ms. Roberts' caliber to the MSA Board," said William M. Lambert, MSA President and CEO.  "Rebecca brings to MSA a tremendous amount of experience in the areas of general management and operations, with strong expertise in the oil, gas and petrochemical industry.  Her expertise and insight, gained from nearly 40 years in the energy industry, will serve MSA very well as we continue to advance our corporate strategy and work toward our long-range goals."

Ms. Roberts retired in 2011 as President of Chevron Pipe Line Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of Chevron Corp.  There, she was responsible for a network of more than 10,000 miles of pipelines transporting crude oil, petroleum products, chemicals, natural gas, and natural gas liquids in North America. 

Prior to her role as President, Ms. Roberts served as President of Chevron Global Power Generation.  In this capacity, Ms. Roberts was responsible for managing Chevron's portfolio of commercial power plants in the United States, Asia and Europe, and identifying new growth and business development opportunities for power generation worldwide.

Ms. Roberts began her career with Texaco as a chemist in South Louisiana and advanced through several technical positions in the company's Houston Research Center before moving to Texaco Natural Gas.  In that division she had management assignments in marketing, operations and business development followed by assignments at Texaco's New York headquarters.  She then served as country manager in Panama until the Chevron merger, at which time she moved to Chevron Global Power Generation.

In addition to her current roles as Director for Black Hills Corporation and Enbridge Energy Partners, Ms. Roberts is a former Chairman and board member for Dress for Success Houston, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping underserved women secure employment.  Ms. Roberts also previously served as a Director of Dynegy Energy Company.
