ARB announces appointment of new Executive Officer
Richard Corey brings strong managerial experience, track record
of innovation

SACRAMENTO—The California Air Resources Board today announced
that it has appointed Richard Corey to be the Board’s new
Executive Officer.
“Richard brings 28 years of professional experience to this
position, including an impressive track record of strong
managerial accomplishments within ARB,“ said ARB Chairman Mary D.

“He is also is an innovator in the world of air quality and has a
proven record of working productively with diverse sets of
stakeholders. Time and again, he has demonstrated the ability to
consider divergent viewpoints and arrive at creative solutions.”
Prior to his appointment as Executive Officer Corey served as
Deputy Executive Officer overseeing the Stationary Source
Division where he was responsible for a broad range of programs
including fuels, incentives, air toxics, and climate change.  He
also oversaw the Agency’s administrative and information
technology groups.
Most recently in the area of climate change programs Corey
oversaw the establishment of the second largest carbon market in
the world, supervising the development and implementation of
California’s pioneering cap and trade regulation, including the
first two successful auctions of carbon allowances.
Corey has been responsible for implementing a wide variety of
programs at ARB including the low carbon fuel standard, and
measures and incentives to reduce emissions from a variety of
goods movement sources. These include port trucking, transport
refrigeration units, cargo handling operations, maritime
operations, and rail-related goods movement.
In addition, he played leadership roles in key programs that have
significantly reduced emissions and contributed to improving
public health including the development and implementation of the
cleaner- burning gasoline regulations, measures to reduce
emissions from stationary and portable diesel engines, and
several strategies to reduce emissions of toxic air contaminants
from a wide variety of sources.
Corey oversaw the development of a system within the clean
vehicle regulations (AB 1493, Pavley) that incentivized more
efficient low greenhouse gas emitting automotive refrigeration
systems.  His groundbreaking work in this new program
demonstrated that opportunities for reducing greenhouse gas
emissions from motor vehicles go well beyond the tailpipe.
Corey has worked on establishing and implementing the Board’s air
toxics program as well as efforts to verify low emission
distributed generation technologies, along with managing the
program to reduce ozone-forming emissions from a broad spectrum
of consumer products.  In addition, he led the effort to develop
the Board’s strategy for reducing emissions of the most potent
greenhouse gases from large refrigeration systems.
Corey, currently the acting Executive Officer, takes over from
James Goldstene who was recently appointed by the Governor as
undersecretary at the California State and Consumer Services

Corey, 53, is married with two grown children. He has an
undergraduate degree in Environmental Toxicology as well as an
MBA from the University of California, Davis.
