Clean Fuels hires Buechter as new communications director

Clean Fuels Alliance America announced Jan. 11 the appointment of Heather Buechter as director of communications.


Buechter fills a vital role in continuing the association’s rebranding efforts, publicizing the organization’s extensive research and education work, and finding new, innovative ways to promote the industry and its growth.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome Heather Buechter to the Clean Fuels team,” said Clean Fuels CEO Donnell Rehagen. “Heather is bringing solid experience in communications and the media to this key role in our association. We are excited that she will help tell our industry’s story as our members rapidly grow this industry.”

Buechter added, “I’m extremely excited for the opportunity to serve Clean Fuels Alliance America and its members in this important role. With growing pressure to reduce carbon emissions, I’m eager to use my skills to further advance the biodiesel and renewable diesel industry.”

Most recently, Buechter served as director of communications for the Missouri Catholic Conference at its headquarters in Jefferson City, where she focused on promoting the organization’s mission through social media, its website and podcasts.

Prior to that, Buechter spent 12 years as a broadcast journalist. She served as the evening-news anchor at KOLR-TV, the CBS affiliate in Springfield, Missouri. There, she earned notable awards for her work, including the regional Edward R. Murrow Award in 2021 for excellence in diversity, equity and inclusion.

An Arkansas native, Buechter earned a bachelor’s degree in communications from the University of Arkansas.

She joins the association ahead of the annual Clean Fuels Conference, to be held Jan. 23-26 in Tampa, Florida.
