National Biodiesel Board CEO Joe Jobe leaves organization

By Ron Kotrba | May 05, 2016

The National Biodiesel Board announced May 5 that its CEO Joe Jobe has left the organization to pursue other opportunities after nearly 20 years of service. 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,” Jobe said.  “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.”

The NBB board of directors thanked Jobe for his years of service and wished him the best in his future endeavors.

Jessica Robinson, director of communications for the NBB, told Biodiesel Magazine that the organization will begin the search for a permanent replacement immediately.

NBB adds that it stands ready to continue to advance its members’ interests by creating sustainable biodiesel industry growth—as it has been doing for more than 20 years.
