Canonsburg, Pennsylvania-based Vision RNG, a developer of landfill gas-to-natural gas systems, has announced four new hires to its leadership team. CEO of Vision RNG Bill Johnson has appointed Jeremy Snyder as Vision RNG's newest operations manager, named Keith McMillen as operations controller and added both Bob Johnston and Marco Calderon as development directors.
Snyder, who Vision RNG says has more than 15 years of management experience in the energy sector, will oversee company projects nationwide. He has held positions in renewable gas, conventional power and landfill construction and compliance companies.
Prior to joining Vision RNG, Snyder was the RNG operations manager for Archea Energy in Syracuse, New York. He also spent time attached to the Aria Energy RNG portfolio in the United States. “I’ve long been excited about the possibilities of RNG and seen the success of RNG projects first-hand,” he comments. “I was drawn to the incredible leadership team that Vision RNG was able to build and am thrilled to be a part of that team moving forward.”
Johnston, who was most recently the business development manager of the solid waste group at Veritas Capital, has more than 30 years of experience in the solid waste industry and industrial valve marketplace. He has sold capital equipment for landfill gas combustion and/or utilization along with reverse osmosis systems for leachate treatment, and has served in regional and national sales manager roles.
Calderon, a Cornell graduate, has more than 15 years of experience in the energy, engineering and environmental restoration industries. Previously, he was the director of business development at UGI Energy Services.
McMillen has more than 15 years of experience in corporate and public accounting. He was most recently the operations controller for CNX Resources, where he spent nearly nine years in various accounting roles working closely with the development and production teams. Prior to CNX, McMillen was at PDC Energy, and he began his career as an auditor at PwC.
“As we begin to broaden our portfolio of RNG projects, Jeremy brings great experience and expertise to our team and can enhance our partnerships with our RNG partners,” says Johnson of Vision RNG. “Keith brings an excellent background in accounting and reporting to the table, and we’re really excited to have him join. Both Bob and Marco have vast experience developing large-scale projects in RNG and other energy fields and will be great assets as we increase our footprint.”
