The National Biodiesel Board has created a new Director of State Regulatory Affairs position and announced the appointment of Steve Dodge to fill it. Dodge is a longtime energy industry veteran who will focus primarily on advancing state and regional policy efforts for biodiesel, renewable diesel, and Bioheat® home heating oil on the east coast.
With more than two decades of experience guiding and managing outreach, communication, and lobbying efforts for the American Petroleum Institute, most recently as Executive Director of the Massachusetts/New England Petroleum Council, Dodge is well positioned to take the lead on NBB efforts focused on this important market.
NBB’s state governmental affairs efforts are led by Floyd Vergara from the organization’s Sacramento, California office. Dodge’s addition on the East Coast compliments the program along with a contract lobbying and support team positioned across the country.
