“We are excited to welcome Amy and Nick to our Board of Directors and look forward to the contributions that their technical and industry expertise, business perspectives and global insights will make to the ongoing success of Global Clean Energy Holdings,” said Board Chairman, David Walker.

The company has completed a $145M financing led by ExxonMobil through the issuance of a newly created non-convertible Series C Preferred Stock.
