Gus BlockDirector at Large
Gus Block is a co-founder of Nuvera Fuel Cells, LLC, established in 2000. As Director of Marketing and Corporate Development, Gus serves as Nuvera’s interface with state and federal agencies, handles government projects, and oversees external and internal communications and public relations initiatives.
For the past twenty years, Gus’s professional career has focused on enabling the use of hydrogen as a clean energy carrier. He is a champion of fuel cell commercialization and has been directly engaged in the development of early markets, particularly industrial mobility. These efforts culminated in the acquisition of Nuvera by the Hyster-Yale Group, the world’s third largest industrial truck manufacturer, in December 2014. With Nuvera, Hyster-Yale expects to be the first global lift truck OEM to fully integrate fuel cells into its product range and to offer single-source hydrogen power options for materials handling.
