Bioenergy Devco appoints two to executive leadership team

Richard J. Fish has been appointed chief operating officer, and Christopher Galle has been appointed chief investment officer and head of investor relations.


Bioenergy Devco, a design, engineering, construction, financing and operation of advanced anaerobic digestion facilities based in Annapolis, Maryland, has announced two changes to its executive leadership team. The company says it is expanding its executive team to help manage the growing market opportunities and meet the investment demand for this burgeoning energy sector.  

The company has appointed Richard J. Fish as chief operating officer. Fish comes with more than 35 years of experience in the renewable energy and private equity sectors. For the past decade, he has led and secured funding for companies in the bioenergy and biogas sectors and serves on several corporate boards in the biofuel industry. At Bioenergy Devco, he will be responsible for operations oversight, plant operations, information technology and human resources as the company's staff and project portfolio grows.  

Additionally, Christopher Galle has been appointed chief investment officer and head of investor relations. Galle previously served as the company's chief operating officer and chief financial officer. Before joining Bioenergy, he spent nearly 15 years in investment banking and private equity investing roles. In his new role, he will guide the company in the acquisition of new investments and the utilization of capital as the interest in anaerobic digestion project financing increases in the United States. Additionally, he will be supporting Bioenergy Devco's business development partnerships and opportunities.  

"The demand for anaerobic digestion in the United States is growing by the day, and to help meet the market where it is, we feel fortunate to have two industry experts on our team," says Shawn Kreloff, founder and CEO of Bioenergy. "As more business opportunities arise for us, and as we bring on additional people to make the promise of anaerobic digestion a possibility, both Richard and Christopher will help us make this promise a reality."
