After meeting Emily Skor during the recent EPA RFS hearings in Kansas City, Chuck Zimmerman had the opportunity to sit down and visit with her at the Fuel Ethanol Workshop in Milwaukee, WI. Emily is the new CEO of Growth Energy. At her very first FEW event she was the keynote speaker. You can listen to her speech here.
Emily told Chuck the position with Growth Energy intrigued her because as a Minnesota native she loved the idea of working for an industry that is so important to the heart of America. She sees that the ethanol industry has built a megaphone to champion issues and the cause in the marketplace. Now the conversation needs to expand beyond the corn belt and the beltway to all consumers.
Emily says there are three key areas of focus for Growth Energy. One is continue to make sure the regulatory and policy environment is pro-ethanol. Another is helping build the marketplace, the infrastructure. And finally to drive consumer demand for ethanol.
