NBB Brings Value to Members Through Experience, Expanded Expertise

By The National Biodiesel Board | August 16, 2017

The National Biodiesel Board has a staff team made up of experts in a wide range of fields with more than 180 years collectively at the organization, with even more experience directly involved in the biodiesel industry and from key contractors. This year, NBB welcomed new additions to the staff team and honored long-tenure milestones.

“Members of the National Biodiesel Board can be proud of the staff that serves the industry on their behalf,” said NBB CEO Donnell Rehagen. “We have some of the most competent, well-respected experts in their field working to advance the biodiesel industry and the interests of our members on a daily basis.”

During the June NBB Membership Meeting in Washington, D.C., the organization recognized milestone staff anniversaries. Along with a host of nationally recognized experts in their respective fields, the organization boasts a staff team that is uncharacteristically stable for a national association.

“To be part of an organization where half of the staff has been together for 10 years or more shows how dedicated this group is to this remarkable industry,” said Scott Tremain, IT director at NBB, who was honored for 15 years of service at the organization. “Not only is it a great place to work, it is clear that the biodiesel industry matters personally to all of us.”

Those recognized for more than 10 years of service include:

• Scott Tremain – IT Director, joined NBB in 2002.
• Tom Verry – Director of Outreach and Development, joined NBB in 2003.
• Donnell Rehagen – Chief Executive Officer, joined NBB in 2004.
• Desiree Hale – Accounting Specialist and BQ-9000 program staff liaison, joined NBB in 2005.
• April Yaeger – Chief Financial Officer, joined NBB in 2006.
• Anne Klempke – Accounting Specialist, joined NBB in 2006.
• Don Scott – Director of Sustainability, joined NBB in 2007.

This year the organization welcomed two new team members and an addition to the executive team.
NBB named Doug Whitehead as its chief operating officer in February. Whitehead joins the executive team after nearly 10 years in various roles with the organization, most recently as the director of operations and membership.

New additions include Rosemarie Calabro Tully who joined the team as the director of public affairs and federal communications, and Brad Shimmens, the director of operations and membership. Tully comes to NBB from Capitol Hill where she was previously the press secretary for the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. Shimmens comes to NBB with a background in finance, business development and community outreach.
