Renewable Fuels Association President Bob Dinneen will transition into an advisory role later this year. Serving as CEO since 2001, Dinneen has been with the organization for more than 30 years and will become RFA’s Senior Strategic Advisor in October.
Executive Vice President Geoff Cooper will assume the position of president and CEO. Cooper joined RFA in 2008 as the organization’s Director of Research and Analysis and had ascended to executive vice president by 2016. He previously worked on ethanol issues for the National Corn Growers Association and served as a Captain in the U.S. Army, specializing in bulk petroleum product logistics. In recent years, Cooper has led RFA’s regulatory activities, while also overseeing the association’s research and technical initiatives, supporting public and media relations efforts, and managing the Renewable Fuels Foundation.
RFA Chairman Mick Henderson mentioned Dinneen spent most of his professional life dedicated to the ethanol industry, and for that “we will always be grateful.”
