Natural Gas Vehicles for America (NGVAmerica) has announced that Matthew Godlewski has been named new President.
Godlewski will succeed Rich Kolodziej, who has served as NGVAmerica’s president since 1996 and has announced plans to retire.
“The NGV market is poised for rapid expansion, and NGVAmerica has a critical role in that growth,” said Ron Eickelman, Chairman of NGVAmerica and President of Agility Fuel Systems. “Matt is an experienced trade association executive who has a proven ability to lead effective teams and collaborate with industry allies. He will help elevate NGVAmerica’s mission and brand in the months ahead.”
Godlewski comes to NGVAmerica at a time when the use of abundant, clean, American natural gas is seeing exponential growth. There is expected to be a 20% increase in the purchase of large trucks that run on LNG and CNG over last year and the compound annual growth rate in the volume of natural gas used in transportation is estimated to exceed 11% through 2040.
Companies are building infrastructure across the nation to support this historic growth among public and private fleets, and to increase adoption in the consumer vehicle sector.
Godlewski said: “The road ahead for natural gas as a transportation fuel is full of opportunity. I am excited to join the industry during such a transformational period and look forward to serving NGVAmerica members as we work together to further accelerate its growth.”
