GAIN Clean Fuel Announces New Hires to Meet Growing Demand
GAIN Clean Fuel/U.S. Gain announced two new hires and a promotion as part of a strategic move to support growing demand for natural gas within the transportation sector.
Randy Richards joins GAIN Clean Fuel as a business development manager to promote the adoption of CNG and RNG as an alternative fuel within the areas of California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma.
“GAIN Clean Fuel has a broad product and service offering, and I look forward to providing unique and flexible solutions to our customers,” Richards says. “This includes expanding Gain’s established CNG infrastructure, providing RNG to fleets seeking greenhouse gas emission reductions and processing grants to offset incremental vehicle costs, strengthening the economic value proposition for fleets seeking clean fuel solutions.”
Richards has more than 25 years of sales leadership in the transportation and technology/software industries, working with leading fleets throughout North America.
Marci LaMantia has been hired to focus on market development throughout North America. In her role, LaMantia will identify progressive companies looking to either adopt or expand use of alternative fuels, educating them on the benefits of partnering with GAIN Clean Fuel to meet their financial and sustainability goals.
Marci brings more than 20 years of experience within the NGV market, most recently holding account executive and market development positions with Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas). During Marci’s tenure, she was responsible for the dramatic growth of CNG infrastructure and NGV adoption of leading school districts, transit authorities and municipalities fleets within Southern California.
“I look forward to enthusiastically sharing many business experiences and successes with GAIN Clean Fuel customers,” LaMantia says. “My intent is to elevate our market participation and assist in growing new infrastructure nationwide.”
To continuously provide industry-leading customer support, GAIN Clean Fuel is proud to promote Sara Wiegert to national account manager. She will be responsible for creating outstanding experiences for the company’s customers. Sara will work closely with the business development managers on growth and relationship management within GAIN Clean Fuel’s customer base, further allowing the sales staff to focus on new customer acquisition. Sara brings a strong supply chain, project management and customer service background to the team.
“I’m passionate about the satisfaction of our customers and am excited to find efficiencies throughout their alternative fuel journey,” Wiegert says. “Ultimately, I want fleets to be proud of their decision to transition to NGVs, as well as partner with GAIN Clean Fuel.”
