NGVAmerica names president

Oct. 13, 2014

Natural Gas Vehicles for America (NGVAmerica) has named Matthew Godlewski president, replacing Rich Kolodziej, who is retiring. Kolodziej has been president since 1996.

“The NGV market is poised for rapid expansion, and NGVAmerica has a critical role in that growth,” said Ron Eickelman, chairman of NGVAmerica and president, Agility Fuel Systems. “Matt is an experienced trade association executive who has a proven ability to lead effective teams and collaborate with industry allies. He will help elevate NGVAmerica’s mission and brand in the months ahead.”

Godlewski will begin at NGVAmerica in mid-October. He has more than 20 years of experience and most recently served on the leadership team of the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers as vice president of state affairs.  Prior to joining the Alliance, he worked in the wine and spirits industry, serving as director of state and federal policy at Pernod Ricard USA. He also served in the global external affairs office of Seagram/Universal Studios, where he lobbied on state and federal issues.

“The road ahead for natural gas as a transportation fuel is full of opportunity,” said Godlewski. “I am excited to join the industry during such a transformational period and look forward to serving NGVAmerica members as we work together to further accelerate its growth.”
