BlueSunThe man who founded and served as the CEO of one of Denver’s first biodiesel firms is out.

This article from the Denver Business Journal
says Blue Sun Energy Inc.’s Jeff Probst, resigned from the company at the end of October… but offers few details about the split:

Probst, who couldn’t be reached for comment Wednesday, also left the director position but remains a part owner of Blue Sun, [company spokesman Steve Bond] said.

“It’s a strategic change for the company,” Bond said. “Jeff had done a lot with launching the company, now it’s entering a different phase.”

Bue Sun was founded in 2001. Probst had been Blue Sun’s CEO and president the past six years, according to the company.

The company expects to fill the CEO position but the board hasn’t met about the subject yet.

The company seems to have kind words about Probst’s time … of course, he still is one of the owners. But does anyone have any info about what happened? Sure would like to know.
