2 Communications Experts Fill Vital Roles at NBB

By The National Biodiesel Board | August 23, 2018

National Biodiesel Board members are benefiting from the wealth of experience and biofuels expertise offered by two communications team members who have taken new positions. Kaleb Little takes the reins as director of communications after working in various communications roles at NBB for more than eight years. Paul Winters, the new director of public affairs and federal communications, hit the ground running in June after more than a decade at Biotechnology Innovation Organization.

“Kaleb has been a key part of the NBB communications team since his arrival in 2010 where he is a familiar face for our members and a trusted source for media covering our industry,” said NBB CEO Donnell Rehagen. “We are excited to see where Kaleb’s passion, commitment and strategic communications skills take our industry as he moves into a formal leadership role on our staff. His knowledge of the biodiesel industry and our association members is a real asset.”

In his most recent role at NBB as senior communications manager, Little oversaw the many strategies used to communicate the benefits of biodiesel to the public including member communication pieces, public events, coordination with stakeholder groups, NBB’s numerous online platforms, social media and more.

Winters comes to NBB from BIO, another biofuels trade association, where he was director of communication for the organization’s industrial and environmental section since 2003. At BIO, Winters led the integration of their policy advocacy and public relations efforts into a strategic public affairs program and was key in building BIO’s reputation as a thought leader on regulatory policy.

“Paul has been entrenched in the Renewable Fuel Standard, the Farm Bill and other biofuels policy efforts for the past decade,” said Rehagen. “NBB members will benefit from his subject matter expertise and policy background. Based in our Washington, D.C., office, Paul will be key in communicating about some of our members’ highest priority areas.”
