Minneapolis-based Wind Energy America Inc. (WNEA) has appointed Howard Lapidus to its board of directors.
As a veteran of the seafood industry for 21 years, Lapidus has worked for Pillsbury and Cargill in managerial positions as well as in smaller food industry companies. After working for a privately held food company in Los Angeles as the executive vice president, he started his own seafood import company, HL Seafood Inc., in Chaska, Minn.
‘For some time, I have seen a tremendous opportunity developing within the wind energy industry,’ says Lapidus. ‘With the costs of fossil fuels skyrocketing, Wind Energy America can play an active role in the mitigation of our country's use of these traditional fuels.’
