May 17, 2016 - Issue #217View Full Issue
The National Biodiesel Board (NBB) recently announced that CEO Joe Jobe has left the organization to pursue other opportunities. Jobe started with NBB in 1997 and became CEO in 1999, during which time he helped lead the industry from 200,000 gallons of biodiesel use to over 2 billion gallons projected in 2016.
“I want to thank the National Biodiesel Board for giving me the opportunity to work in an industry that is helping to change the world,” said Jobe. “I love this industry—the hard-working people, the visionary leaders, and the product that I will continue to use every day. Now is a good time for me to pursue a different path. Biodiesel is positioned to lead the carbon reduction goals of the nation and I can’t wait to see what biodiesel does next.”
“Joe Jobe was a tireless advocate for the biodiesel industry for nearly twenty years, and his service and dedication will be greatly missed,” stated Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) Executive Director Monte Shaw. “We wish Joe nothing but the best in the future, and look forward to continuing our work with the National Biodiesel Board to promote the immense benefits of cleaner-burning, locally-produced biodiesel.”
The NBB board of directors also thanked Jobe for his years of service and wished him the best in his future endeavors. The NBB will begin the search for a permanent replacement immediately.
