STOCKTON — Brenna Butler Garcia has been tapped to become the manager for Marketing and External Engagement for the Western States Petroleum Association (WSPA). The Western States Petroleum Association is a non-profit trade association representing five western states.
Garcia resigned her current position as the CEO of the San Joaquin County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SJCHCC) and will assume her new role Jan. 8.
