Clean Energy Fuels Corp. appointed trucking industry veteran Stephen Scully to the post of chairman of its board of directors, effective immediately.
Scully has been a member of the board since 2014. He replaces Warren Mitchell, who will remain on the board.
“Steve’s years of experience in the transportation industry as well as his solid managerial skills have proven invaluable to the board, to me and to other Clean Energy executives,” Clean Energy CEO Andrew Littlefair said in a company release.
“I’m confident that Steve’s elevation to chairman will give us the continuity we need as the company continues to grow and particularly as the trucking industry, which Steve is so steeped in, continues its transition to the clean alternative of natural gas fuel,” Littlefair said.
Scully was founder and president of the Scully Cos., a California-based truck leasing and specialized contract carriage provider. He started the company immediately after graduating from college in 1981 and sold it to Ryder System Inc. in 2011.
“My optimism continues to grow for Clean Energy’s future,” Scully said in a statement. “The world is waking up to the harmful impact diesel is having on our environment and there is no better alternative for fleets than natural gas.”
Clean Energy is the leading provider of natural gas fuel and renewable natural gas fuel for transportation in North America, according to the Newport Beach, Calif.-based company.
