Brett Lund, Gevo EVP & General Counsel Awarded “Best Corporate Counsel”

Stocks in this article: GEVO

Gevo, Inc. (NASDAQ: GEVO), a leading renewable chemicals and advanced biofuels company, is pleased to announce that Executive Vice President and General Counsel Brett Lund recently received the Denver Business Journal’s (DBJ) “Best Corporate Counsel” award at a ceremony in Denver. Lund was recognized for his strong business acumen, intellectual property expertise, strategic deal making, Securities and Exchange Commission acumen, human resources knowledge, and experience in raising money.

“It was an honor to receive the DBJ’s Best Corporate Counsel award for public companies,” said Lund. “It’s a humbling experience to be recognized for my contributions at Gevo, within the community and amongst my peers. I attribute my success to the collaborative culture and leadership at Gevo.”

The DBJ’s selection was attributed to Lund’s efforts in defending Gevo’s intellectual property against patent-infringement lawsuits filed by Butamax™ Advanced Biofuels, LLC (Butamax). Lund built up Gevo’s intellectual property portfolio to include over 300 hundred patents and applications. Gevo filed counterclaims against Butamax and E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company (DuPont) for infringement of two of its patents and has added an additional four patent infringement lawsuits against Butamax and DuPont.

Lund was also recognized for helping Gevo raise approximately $100 million in venture financing and engineering the company’s initial public offering in early 2011, which raised $123 million and was only the second IPO for a next-generation biofuels company. The DBJ also highlighted Lund’s contribution to the company’s growth by negotiating deals with the U.S. Air Force for Gevo to develop renewable jet fuel and with Coca-Cola to make 100% renewable plastic bottles as well as with Lanxess AG of Germany, to produce renewable tires.

“Brett’s expertise in patent law, strategic alliances, securities and finance has been instrumental in building Gevo and establishing our path forward,” said Dr. Patrick Gruber, Gevo’s CEO. “It’s wonderful that the DBJ has recognized Brett’s contribution to his profession, the community and most importantly to Gevo.”
