ACE executive vice president Brian Jennings speaks at Absolute Energy recent annual meeting

In a world of mega mergers and company buy outs, farmer-owned facilities remain the back bone of the ethanol industry, with many in operation today for over 20 years.

American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) executive vice president Brian Jennings has been attending many of the annual member meetings for these ethanol plants this spring to help them celebrate another year. “Our plant members work hard to provide a meaningful return to local shareholders, and I’m honored to speak at their annual meetings to congratulate them for the operational and financial progress they’ve made,” Jennings said. “Ethanol plants grow more efficient every day, which is a real testament to the folks who have dedicated their careers to innovation and to being wise stewards of their shareholder’s investments.”

Jennings has visited Cardinal Ethanol, Absolute Energy, Ace Ethanol, and Badger State Ethanol annual meetings so far this year and will be at Dakota Ethanol’s upcoming meeting in South Dakota this week.
