Langston named FUELIowa president and CEO

Ron Langston has been named president and chief executive officer for FUELIowa, effective today. The association’s board of directors voted to hire him as the successor to Dawn Carlson, who has been with the fuel industry trade organization for the past 25 years and held the top leadership role since 2003. "After conducting a nationwide search, we have found a highly credentialed and capable executive to lead our association forward and build upon the proud legacy that Dawn Carlson has created," said Jason McDermott, FUELIowa board chair. "We are excited to work with Ron Langston and put his vast leadership experience and extensive skill sets to work for our association, our industry and fuel consumers statewide."

In addition to his association executive duties, Langston will assume president and CEO responsibilities for HealthAlliance Benefit Plan, a multiple employer welfare association operated by FUELIowa and providing benefits services to member companies. He also will serve on the board of directors for RINAlliance, a for-profit company owned by FUELIowa that helps member and nonmember clients from across the nation manage RIN economics and profits under the Renewable Fuel Standard. Langston returns to Iowa from Washington, D.C., where he has been working as a senior consultant and director of small and medium enterprises with the Stevenson Group, as well as principal consultant for Langston Global Enterprises LLC.

Dawn Carlson is leaving her position at FUELIowa in February 2020 to spend more time with her family and to devote more energy to mission work and professional opportunities through her equestrian business, River Heights Ranch.
