Global Clean Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:GCEH), renewable fuels innovator and the world’s leading camelina supplier, today announced that founder Richard Palmer has notified the Board of Directors that he will retire as Chief Executive Officer. Palmer will remain a member of Global Clean Energy’s Board following his retirement. The Board of Directors has appointed current President Noah Verleun as Interim CEO.

As founder of Global Clean Energy and its leader for 17 years, Palmer is the visionary behind the Company’s vertically integrated farm-to-fuel strategy. Under Palmer’s leadership, Global Clean Energy has grown to more than 150 employees operating on three continents.

“I am extremely proud of the talented and hard working team we have assembled through the years and am grateful for the opportunity to have advanced the promise of Global Clean Energy from concept to reality. Now, as the Company pivots from construction to operations in the coming months at our Bakersfield facility, it is a fitting time to transition to the next generation of leadership,” Palmer said. “I have worked closely with Noah since the early days of Global Clean Energy’s journey and know that his exceptional leadership and business experience will guide the Company successfully into its next chapter.”

Noah Verleun brings extensive knowledge of the renewable energy industry with nearly 15 years of experience driving Global Clean Energy’s strategy, including managing and advancing key commercial relationships. He has served as Global Clean Energy’s President since April 2022 and, prior to that, held multiple key roles across the organization.

“I’m excited to continue working alongside our strong leadership team,” Verleun said. “We remain laser-focused on completing the Bakersfield Renewable Fuels facility, which we expect to begin production in the second quarter of 2024.”

David Walker, Global Clean Energy’s Chairman of the Board, added: “We are confident Noah is the right leader for Global Clean Energy as the Company heads into its next phase. The Board also thanks Richard for his many contributions. His strong entrepreneurial spirit and vision for renewable energy have put Global Clean Energy on the successful path it is on today, and we are delighted he will continue to make meaningful contributions to our future growth as a member of the Board of Directors.”
