Lee Enterprises adds expert to head Native American projects
Biodiesel and alternative energy consulting group Lee Enterprises announced the addition of Paul Lindsey to lead the group’s Native American and indigenous people’s alternative and renewable fuels projects. Lindsey has a bachelor’s degree in communications from Salisbury State University in Maryland, and is the CEO of The Imua Group Inc., actively involved in consulting in renewable energy, economic development through renewable energy solutions, including wind, solar, gasification, waste to energy, and mineral development for tribes throughout North America, Canada, Alaska and Hawaii. Lindsey has a strong background with utility-scale and micro-grid wind power generations systems and gasification solutions using many different feedstocks as fuel, as well as a strong working knowledge of photovoltaic solar power generation solutions.
“Paul has many years’ experience in handling Native American alternative and renewable fuels matters and he maintains strong relationships with most of the Native American tribes and Indigenous people of Canada, Alaska and Hawaii,” said Lee Enterprises CEO Wayne Lee. He said that being the largest alternative or renewable fuels in the world, his group is well positioned to handle virtually every type of alternative or renewable fuels matter for a variety of clients worldwide. “Alternative and renewable projects on Native American lands often present unique situations in grants, loans, zoning and many other matters,” Lee said. “We felt like Native American projects were of such importance to the alternative and renewable fuels industry that we decided to add a seasoned expert to handle that segment of our business.” Lee also noted that Pau Lindsey’s relationship with Native American tribes and his understanding of the required methodology in these type projects made his the perfect addition to the group.
“I have been involved with Native American projects for many years,” said Lindsey. “I know that Lee Enterprises has very clearly established itself as the top alternative and renewable fuels consulting group in the world and I trust that I can bring my experience to assist them in Native American projects.” Lindsey further noted that he found the group’s commitment to tribal projects to be a very important factor when accepting this new position. “A new project represents real jobs for real people, and helps the overall economy on Native American lands,” Lindsey said. “My goal was to find a group with both the best talent and the ability to get these projects done, and Lee Enterprises was very clearly the obvious choice.” Lindsey describes his new affiliation as “the perfect fit.”
