J dropcapacques Beaudry-Losique has joined Algenol Biofuels Inc. as Senior Vice President of Corporate and Business Development. Algenol created this new position in response to their rapid growth and preparation for commercialization. Mr. Beaudry-Losique will lead the Business Development team as the company identifies, evaluates and pursues commercial opportunities and partnerships. In his new role, Jacques will also lead and manage government and regulatory affairs for the Company, working with elected officials and government agencies on policy and regulatory issues.  He is expected to spend a large amount of his time in Washington, D.C. monitoring and advocating on Algenol’s behalf at the federal level as they prepare to expand.
