his solid managerial skills have proven invaluable to the board, to me
and to other Clean Energy executives," said Andrew J. Littlefair, CEO
and president of Clean Energy. "I'm confident that Steve's elevation to
Chairman will give us the continuity we need as the company continues to

the clean alternative of natural gas fuel."

natural gas. I have big shoes to fill in Warren's but look forward to
working with the other board members and Clean Energy's executive team
to take advantage of this exciting time in the transportation industry."
