Riggs Eckelberry, founding CEO of OriginOil.

OriginOil is a publicly-traded technology firm that helps algae growers extract oil from algae for use as a feedstock for the commercial production of transportation fuels, chemicals and foods.

Riggs transitioned into clean technology from a thirty-year career in high tech, having previously helped take Los Angeles-based CyberDefender public as its president and COO. Earlier, he was a key member of the team that developed YellowPages.com, resulting in its sale for $100 million; and he contributed to numerous other company successes in a lengthy career during and after the dot-com era.

In January of 2011, Riggs Eckelberry was named to the Advisory Board of the National Algae Association. He speaks regularly on algae industry trends and writes the Algae Business column for Algae Industry Magazine.
