Cima Green's former operations chief Tracy welcomes new role

By Ron Kotrba | April 04, 2013

After three years as chief operating officer for the biodiesel trading and marketing firm Cima Green, Katirina Tracy has taken on a new role with the company as senior director of sales and operations. Cima Green says Tracy’s change in roles is driving the organization’s new strategy toward greater market focus.

Tracy told Biodiesel Magazine she’s incredibly excited about her new senior directorship of sales. “It’s been so nice to see such an outpouring of support for me in this new role,” she said, adding that driving sales, along with being a team leader and having a more direct involvement in trading, are welcomed responsibilities.

“She’s one of only a few women in a senior trading role,” said Joseph Furando, Cima Green founder and senior vice president of sales and marketing. “I only see her going up from here.”  

Furando noted that, as chief operating officer, it was difficult for Tracy to get the needed face time with clients, something Tracy said she looks forward to.

“I feel that this transition greatly benefits the firm, our team of traders and gives our clients greater access to me,” she said. “A true win-win for the organizations I am partnered with and our client base.”
