Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor recently named POET Founder and CEO Jeff Broin as the American Biofuels Visionary award winner. Tom Buis, previously the CEO of Growth Energy, joined Skor onstage during the 11th Annual Executive Leadership Conference. Growth Energy presents the award in tribute for a lifetime of leadership that has fueled the growth of America’s entire biofuels sector. “Jeff Broin’s unwavering leadership and transformative vision for U.S. biofuels have touched the lives of every American, from farm families in South Dakota to drivers in New York,” Skor says. “As founding chair of Growth Energy, he followed in the footsteps of other great American founding fathers, building an enduring legacy that will shape the future of homegrown energy for generations to come.” Broin says he’s honored and humbled to be recognized by Growth Energy. “Helping to found and grow this organization has been a true labor of love for me, going back to my roots on the family farm. While we have won many battles, the war over biofuels is far from over.” Broin says he will continue to work with the biofuels industry and agriculture to drive biofuels to new heights in the years to come. POET Biofuels is the world’s largest ethanol producer.
