LanzaJet, Inc. a sustainable fuels technology company and sustainable fuels producer, today announced Doreen Pryor as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of the company.

With more than 20 years of commercial and financial experience at global companies, Pryor will oversee LanzaJet’s financial growth as the company continues to scale rapidly and advance the global sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) industry.
