NGVAmerica Board Initiates Search for a New President

NGVAmerica leader Rich Kolodziej passed the word Thursday that he is stepping down as association president. “Kolodziej will remain as president until the new president is selected,” states an organization release. He’ll “stay on as an advisor to ensure an orderly transition.”

“It has been an honor and privilege to lead NGVAmerica during these past 18 years,” Kolodziej says in the announcement.

“NGVs have gone from a niche application to a recognized and essential part of America’s transportation system,” he said. “The NGV industry is poised for historic growth in both traditional on-road markets and new non-road markets – like off-road, marine and rail. I believe now is the right time for NGVAmerica’s transition to new staff leadership to position the association to serve the needs of this rapidly expanding industry.”

‘An Extraordinary Job as Leader and Spokesman’

“I could not have asked for a more exciting and fulfilling career,” Kolodziej told NGVAmerica members.

“Rich has done an extraordinary job as leader and spokesman for the NGV industry,” said Ron Eickelman, president of Agility Fuel Systems and current NGVAmerica chair.

“The industry has seen tremendous growth during these past two decades, and Rich has been instrumental in helping drive that expansion and successfully leading the association through this evolution.”

NGVAmerica represents more than 200 companies, environmental groups, and government organizations interested in the promotion and use of natural gas and biomethane as transportation fuels.
