Suburban Propane Partners L.P. announced that at its regular meeting held on April 18, the partnership's board of supervisors unanimously approved an increase in the number of independent members of the board from seven to nine, and elected Amy M. Adams and Rommel M. Oates to fill the two vacancies following the increase in the size of the board. Both actions are effective as of May 5.

Adams and Oates were each elected for a term due to expire at the next Tri-Annual Meeting of Unitholders of the partnership, currently planned for May 2024. At that meeting, under the current partnership agreement, all supervisors will be elected by the partnership's common unitholders.

Adams recently transitioned to vice president of government partnerships and funding at Cummins Inc., focused on private-public collaboration building in the zero emissions space. Oates brings to the board a deep understanding of energy markets, renewable energy solutions and over two decades of experience in hydrogen commercial and technical market development. Oates founded and serves as the chairman and CEO of Oates Energy Solutions LLC, a privately owned energy and technology value creation services company, and is CEO of Refinery Calculator Inc., a global refining, energy, chemicals, emissions and hydrogen market intelligence cloud-based software platform.
