Enable Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE:ENBL) today announced that effective Feb. 1, 2015, energy industry veteran Alan Harris will join the Board of Directors of its general partner, Enable Midstream GP, LLC. Harris will join Peter H. Kind and C. Scott Hobbs as independent directors and will serve on the Board’s audit, conflicts and compensation committees. He will chair the compensation committee.

“We appreciate Alan’s willingness to serve on our Board and look forward to him joining us early next year,” said Pete Delaney, Enable Midstream chairman and chairman and CEO of OGE Energy Corp. “He will bring a wealth of midstream experience and add a valuable perspective to our Board.”
