- Trevor Hinz, representing ICM, Inc.
- David Kolsrud, representing Badger State Ethanol
- Jan Lundebrek, representing Chippewa Valley Ethanol Company

“As 2020 brought on a whole new set of challenges, we’re grateful for the guidance of our dedicated volunteers who make up the board of directors and represent the grassroots diversity of our members,” said Brian Jennings, ACE CEO.
In addition, two incumbents, Gary Marshall of the Missouri Corn Growers Association and Greg Krissek of the Kansas Corn Growers Association, completed their service on the ACE board of directors.

ACE is powered by people who have built an innovative industry that sustainably delivers clean fuel and valuable food for a growing world. These farmers, ranchers, Main Street businesses, scientists, investors, and renewable fuel producers work together to inform consumers and elected officials that in addition to helping keep gas prices low, creating jobs, improving the economy, displacing foreign oil, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, ethanol delivers a great deal of human good.
