John Hofmeister, Former Shell Oil President, Founder of Citizens for Affordable Energy, Author of “Why We Hate the Oil Companies,” and FFF Advisory Board Member Expands Role as a Member of the Board of Directors
IRVINE, CA–(Marketwired – Jun 24, 2015) – Fuel Freedom Foundation today announced that John Hofmeister has joined the Foundation’s Board of Directors. Hofmeister will continue to serve as a member of FFF’s advisory board. This new title allows him to expand his role within the organization.
Hofmeister is the former president of Shell Oil, as well as the founder of Citizens for Affordable Energy. He has been a member of the Foundation’s advisory board since its inception in 2012. His expertise in the constantly evolving global transportation fuels market will be invaluable to Fuel Freedom’s goals to reduce the price of oil and give consumers choice at the pump.
“Rather than allowing our nation to descend into an energy abyss, we must all work hard to shift the United States away from its obsession with oil,” Hofmeister said. “So many years of my life have been dedicated to this cause — trying to shift America toward a healthier, more energy-efficient future, and I can’t wait to continue to do so through my existing and new roles at the Fuel Freedom Foundation.”
As a member of the Foundation’s Board of Directors, Hofmeister will have input on critical decisions such as budget votes, major expenditures, and the foundation’s strategic direction.
“John has been a longtime supporter of our organization and I’m thrilled to see him take a more active role,” said Yossie Hollander, co-founder and Chairman of Fuel Freedom Foundation. “His unparalleled knowledge and experience with energy and especially natural gas issues has been an essential asset in our fight to end oil’s monopoly.”
Citizens for Affordable Energy, Hofmeister’s non-profit organization, seeks to change the way Americans perceive energy through practical, non-partisan solutions. In accordance with this goal and the mission of Fuel Freedom Foundation, Hofmeister has appeared on countless news networks, public engagements across the nation and college campuses to educate the public.
