Hexagon has a longstanding commitment to clean fuel solutions with NGVAmerica (Natural Gas Vehicles for America), a US member organisation dedicated to creating a profitable, sustainable and growing market for compressed natural gas (CNG), renewable natural gas (RNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered vehicles.

NGVAmerica has recently announced changes in key leadership roles.

Jack Schimenti, Executive Vice President of Hexagon, was elected as the new Treasurer.

“Jack Schimenti and the Hexagon team have been strong advocates of the clean fuels industry and we are excited to welcome Jack to NGVAmerica’s executive committee,” says Daniel Gage, NGVAmerica’s President. “We believe in Hexagon’s experience driving energy transformation and appreciate their leadership as the natural gas and biogas vehicle markets continue to evolve around the world.”

Sam Gabbita, Chairman of the Board of Agility Fuel Solutions, has been added to NGVAmerica’s Board of Directors to leverage his insights as the leading global provider of highly-engineered and cost-effective clean fuel solutions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles.

Chet Dawes, Senior Vice President of Agility Fuel Solutions, has been appointed co-chair of the Technology Committee vacated by Past Chair Ron Eickleman, Founding Executive of Agility Fuel Solutions. This appointment further reflects Hexagon’s commitment to NGVAmerica’s mission to drive safety as a key value to natural gas vehicle adoption.

Hexagon supports NGVAmerica’s stance “If we want cleaner air, we need cleaner vehicles” and has been an active member on safety councils and technology committees, as well as a strong promoter of favourable policy at the state and national level.

In addition to increasing commercialisation of CNG, LNG and RNG as economic, clean, domestic, safe and abundant fuels for on-road vehicles, Hexagon has championed growing opportunities to build on the benefits of natural gas fueling with off-road applications. Hexagon and NGVAmerica are at the forefront of natural gas fuel solutions with economic and environmental benefits for mobile pipeline, rail, marine, mining and other energy intensive industries.

“NGVAmerica primes collaboration among member companies, environmental groups, and government organisations interested in the promotion and use of natural gas and biomethane as transportation fuels. I look forward to continued success in moving the markets,” adds Schimenti.
