Sept. 20, 2011, Arlington, VA – The board
of directors of the Pellet Fuels Institute (PFI) has appointed Jennifer
Hedrick as the new executive director. Hedrick's appointment marks the first
time in its 26-year history that PFI will have a full-time executive director.
According to PFI President Scott Jacobs,
"This is an important step for our association, and the industry, as we
continue to build awareness of the benefits of using densified biomass fuel.
Over the last three years, Jennifer has demonstrated outstanding
coalition-building skills. She is equally committed to advocating for the use
of densified biomass as a means for job creation in the United States and as a
viable option for achieving our country's energy objectives."
Hedrick has been with PFI since 2008,
serving first as the association manager before being appointed acting
executive director in July 2011. As association manager, Hedrick was the point
person for PFI's standards program, as well as the PFI annual conference. She
played a key role in the association's overall management, strategic
development, and membership outreach.
"I am excited about this opportunity
and honoured that the PFI board has chosen me for this role," Hedrick
said. "I look forward to continuing to work with the board, membership,
and staff to advance the mission of PFI and help promote the industry to
consumers and policy makers."
