Mr. Michael Laub, Member of the Board of Directors
Mr. Laub began his career in the Real Estate industry as a Licensed Loan Officer in 1988. Soon after he earned his “Brokers” License for real estate finance lending and established his first brokerage office in Southern California in 1990. His practice grew to include both mortgage finance offices and real estate sales offices in South Orange County, California. Both managed by Mr. Laub till 2008. After a successful 20 year career in the real estate industry, Mr. Laub looked for new business challenges and directed his focus toward the “clean energy” sector. Recognizing the substantial cost savings in operating Compressed Natural Gas (“CNG”) fueled vehicles vs Gasoline vehicles was his catalyst. Michael began buying and selling CNG vehicles across the country. That experience and the healthy demand he witnessed nationally for cleaner burning, more cost effective vehicles, led him on the search for CNG conversion kits and components in effort to start converting existing gasoline+diesel vehicles to run on CNG. From early on the focus for Mr. Laub was to provide quality CNG conversion systems, parts and accessories to small and large vehicle fleets across the country. Soon thereafter Mr. Laub realized the necessity to educate the automobile technicians on proper safety installation and maintenance practices. Thus he began a company entitled “CNG United LLC,” an Alternative Fuels, safety & education company. He created a CNG educational curriculum for automotive technicians providing them an opportunity to earn two CNG certifications while following his comprehensive step by step policies & procedures to ensure a successful and safe vehicle conversion.
