NGVAmerica Names Gage New President

September 13, 2017 in NGVs, people by Rich Piellisch  |  No Comments

Daniel Gage from the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers,
Mitchell Pratt of Clean Energy Fuels Is Association Chairman

NGVAmerica has named Daniel Gage as its new president. He comes onboard mid-month, having served as senior director of communications and public affairs with the Washington, D.C.-based Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers since 2011.

Daniel Gage

“Gage takes over leadership of NGVAmerica at an important time in the organization’s 30-year history as the nation’s leading organization driving the use of natural gas as a clean, domestic, safe and abundant transportation fuel,” states a release.

“Dan’s deep experience in moving positive initiatives through a variety of channels will be critical as NGVAmerica continues to push for policies that make natural gas fuel more available to the transportation market,” association chair (and Clean Energy Fuels COO) Mitchell Pratt says in the announcement.

‘Defining Moment’

“As alternative fuels grab more and more headlines about their potential, it is imperative that our industry communicates the many ways natural gas is the superior choice for fleets that are looking to make a positive impact on the environment and to save money today and into the future,” Pratt said.

“It’s a defining moment for natural gas in transportation,” said Gage, as “natural gas remains the cleanest commercially available transportation option, costing – on average – one third less than other fuels.”

“Domestically-sourced, natural gas delivers superior performance and offers the most cost-effective NOx emissions reductions as compared to diesel or electric options.”

Capitol Hill Experience Too

Gage holds more than 20 years of experience in government and community relations and public affairs, “building effective teams and developing comprehensive messaging campaigns,” NGVAmerica says, “to shape policy at all levels of government.”

Prior to joining the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, Gage was a senior staff member in the Washington office of the American Academy of Pediatrics and served as government relations VP for JA Green. His background includes a decade of Congressional experience.

NGVAmerica kicked off the search for new leadership at ACT Expo this past spring (F&F, May 8).
