Gary Smith

Sales Specialist

Gary joined DTC in 2017 to support new client business development. He will support the DTC research team with his coal market experience and insight but will be primarily responsible for selling DTC’s research and consulting services to prospective clients. Gary recently “retired” from a 36 year career in the energy trade. He began his career sailing aboard ocean-going oil supertankers for Gulf and Mobil.   He eventually came ashore to the coal business and over the next 25+ years engaged in all facets of thermal coal sales: marketing domestically and overseas with Sprague Energy and Massey Energy. He recently retired from Wood Mackenzie where he supported the company with coal research sales and established StrateG LLC, a professional services company. Gary earned a BS in Nautical Science from the Maine Maritime Academy, and MS in Business from Husson University. When he isn’t helping us with research sales, he can be found tending bar summers in Maine and winters in Virginia.
