DRIVE CLEAN COLORADO ANNOUNCES TWO NEW BOARD MEMBERS

New members join the current Board of Directors leading the new era of Drive Clean Colorado

 [DENVER, CO] – Drive Clean Colorado announced today two new board members, Matt Goble and Jessie Lund, bringing the number of board members to nine.

“I’m excited to welcome Matt and Jessie to the Drive Clean Colorado Board of Directors. They both bring key industry expertise that will provide important perspective for the DCC stakeholders and leadership,” stated Steve McCannon, President of the Drive Clean Colorado Board of Directors. “This perspective, along with their dedication to the success of the coalition, will help us keep our momentum as the organization continues to grow across the state.”

With their solid leadership skills and extensive experience in clean transportation and mobility, our new board members will allow us to deepen our impact for fleets and manufacturers in Colorado,” said Bonnie Trowbridge, Executive Director of Drive Clean Colorado, “especially in the areas of vehicle and infrastructure incentives and advanced technology heavy-duty vehicles.”

 

Matt Goble is a Program Coordinator for the Regional Air Quality Council. Matt is currently the program manager for the RAQC’s mobile sources programs, including Charge Ahead Colorado and ALT Fuels Colorado.  Matt leads coordinated efforts with state agencies, local governments, and private companies to adopt electric vehicles (EV) and electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) state-wide. Matt earned his BA in Political Science from Metropolitan State College of Denver, is a Colorado native, and proud father of two girls.

“I’m incredibly honored to be joining the Drive Clean Colorado Board of Directors.  Day in and day out, I have the opportunity to speak with businesses and fleets across the state who are interested in cleaning up their transportation footprint.  I’m excited to share those real-world examples to help advance the conversation around emissions reductions and technology-based transportation solutions,” said Matt Goble.

 

Jessie Lund is a Senior Associate at RMI. As a Senior Associate with RMI’s Carbon-Free Mobility team, Jessie is dedicated to accelerating the clean energy transition and specializes in emissions reductions from heavy-duty transport. She works closely with the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) to advance electric truck adoption and her background also includes work on transit bus electrification, charging infrastructure buildout, policy, stakeholder engagement and facilitation, and project management. Jessie was the recipient of SAE’s 2020 Environmental Excellence in Transportation Award. Prior to joining RMI, Jessie served as the Sustainability Program Coordinator for the City and County of Denver. Jessie earned a M.Sc. in Human Dimensions of Natural Resources from Colorado State University and a BA in International Studies from the University of Missouri. Jessie is the Co-Lead of the Colorado Front Range Chapter of Women of EVs (WEV).

“I am incredibly excited and honored to be joining the board of Drive Clean Colorado, whose work I respect so much and whose mission deeply resonates with me. My passion for equitable clean energy solutions is what brought me to RMI and what’s driven my work with zero-emission commercial vehicles, and I look forward to leveraging that same passion and the expertise I’ve developed over the years to advance these solutions here in my home state,” said Jessie Lund.  “I’m proud of the progress Colorado has made to date, though the road ahead is long. And with the near daily air quality alerts we’ve been experiencing on the Front Range this summer, DCC’s work has never been more urgent, and I’ve never been more motivated to help advance equitable clean transportation solutions for Colorado.”
