The Renewable Fuels Association recently elected new leadership at its annual meeting in Des Moines, Iowa. The Board selected Randall Doyal, general manager and CEO of Al-Corn Clean Fuel, as the next chairman of the board of directors. Doyal heads an ethanol facility in Claremont, Minnesota, that produces 50 million gallons annually.

An industry expert, Doyal’s career in the ethanol industry began in 1982 at Mountain Development Corp. In addition to Al-Corn Clean Fuel, he serves as chairman of the board of Guardian Energy LLC and Renewable Products Marketing Group. Doyal previously served as vice-chairman and treasurer of the RFA.

“It is truly an honor to be selected by my peers to head the Renewable Fuels Association. The RFA has the technical knowledge, political influence, and market acumen to positively impact today’s ethanol industry, which will in turn help bolster biofuels production and consumption across the nation. I am proud to take the helm and lead this great organization as ethanol is establishing itself as an indispensable part of this country’s motor fuel supply. We will work to protect the Renewable Fuel Standard and expand markets abroad. The future is bright and I look forward to this new challenge,” Doyal said.

Additionally, RFA elected:

- Vice-Chairman Mick Henderson, general manager of Commonwealth Agri-Energy in Hopkinsville, Kentucky

- Treasurer Walter Wendland of Golden Grain Energy LLC in Mason City, Iowa.

- President Bob Dinneen, CEO of the Renewable Fuels Association in Washington, D.C.
