Omnitek Engineering Corporation, a developer of diesel-to-natural gas (DNG) engine conversion systems, announced the promotion of Alicia Rolfe to chief financial officer from controller, superseding Janice Quigley who elected to retire from her position, according to Omnitek.

Alicia Rolfe, 40, has more than 17 years of financial management and accounting experience, Omnitek said. Prior to joining Omnitek, she served as head of financial reporting for Rancho Trade, Inc. Earlier in her career, she served as a staff accountant for ZD Market Intelligence, a subsidiary of Ziff-Davis, Inc, Omnitek said. Rolfe earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration with an emphasis in accounting from San Diego State University and is a certified management accountant.

Werner Funk, president and chief executive officer of Omnitek Engineering Corporation, noted that its Port of Seattle project and the ongoing North American expansion of conversion center partnerships are important catalysts for the company's growth.

Omnitek announced on July 11, 2013 that it was selected by the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency for a pilot project to demonstrate its diesel-to-natural gas engine conversion technology for drayage trucks serving the Port of Seattle, Washington, in support of the Port's Clean Truck Program. The project has a goal of meeting 2007 EPA emission standards for particulate emissions by 2017 for all drayage trucks serving the Port's marine container terminals, estimated at more than 2,000 vehicles, Omnitek reported.
