David W. Fiore — Chief Executive Officer

Whitehall, PA—Prominently featured in The Inner Circle, David W. Fiore is acknowledged as a Distinguished Business Professional for his contributions to the Renewable Energy Sources Field.

Mr. Fiore was active in the coal industry prior to transitioning to renewable energy sources. In that role, he was responsible for prospecting coal properties, permeating them, mining them and selling coal to brokers. This third generation, in-depth knowledge of the coal industry was punctuated by his father’s and grandfather’s experiences in the coal industry, which helped him to recognize the potential of solar, wind, geothermal and other sustainable types of energy besides coal.

Mr. Fiore began pursuing business in renewables, conducting prospecting work, and obtaining the necessary permits following his high school graduation. At 21, he successfully applied for a loan to finance his business where he thrived as the chief executive officer of Buena Vista Energy and Community Energy Group, LLC.

Among his current duties, he is also a site developer of renewable projects; identifying properties, such as abandoned coal facilities; and closed steel mills, with potential for sustainable development.

In addition to his professional successes, Mr. Fiore is especially proud of his company’s 600-acre solar development in southwest Pennsylvania. Over the next five years, he plans to continue developing brownfield sites for renewable energy and beneficial reuse. The property’s high elevation and flat terrain is well suited for renewable Energy Generation, from its onsite access to the PJM power grid; high volume NiSource gas distribution/transmission line; and adjacent electricity substation.

Aside from his professional pursuits, Mr. Fiore supports the Wounded Warrior Project and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. He also graciously gives to homeless shelters, feeding programs and other missions. A leader in his field, Mr. Fiore encourages individuals to not give up, to continue toward their goals, and to avoid being discouraged by disappointments because they will come to pass.
