Richard Kolodziej says he is retiring as president of industry trade group NGVAmerica – a position he has held for nearly 20 years.
‘The NGV industry is poised for historic growth in both traditional on-road markets and new non-road markets. I believe now is the right time for NGVAmerica's transition to new staff leadership to position the association to serve the needs of this rapidly expanding industry,’ he comments.
‘Rich has been instrumental in helping drive that expansion and successfully leading the association through this evolution,’ says Ronald Eickelman, chairman of NGVAmerica and president of Agility Fuel Systems.
Kolodziej took the helm of NGVAmerica in 1995. He will stay on as president until his replacement is hired – an effort that has already begun – and remain with the organization through the transition process.
