Adams Resources & Energy has increased its board of directors to seven positions with the appointments of Michelle Earley and Murray Brasseux, effective March 17.  These appointments increase the board's independent director positions from the current three to five positions. 

Earley is a partner with the law firm of Locke Lord.  She has extensive experience in capital markets and mergers and acquisition transactions as well as advising clients on securities regulation and offerings and corporate governance. 

Brasseux recently retired as the managing director for oil and gas finance at BBVA Compass Bank.  Originally employed by the bank in 1994, he started their energy lending group and grew it to approximately $8 billion in energy lending commitments servicing approximately 170 upstream and midstream companies.
