Pulitzer Prize Winning Journalist and Business Executive Sheryl WuDunn Joins Fuel Freedom Foundation's Board of Advisors

Sheryl WuDunn, Co-Founder of FullSky Capital and a Veteran of Alternative Energy Issues, Joins the Fight to Open the Gas Pump to Competition

IRVINE, CA -- Aug 13, 2014 -- Fuel Freedom Foundation today announced that Sheryl WuDunn, the first Asian-American reporter to win a Pulitzer Prize, will be joining the Fuel Freedom Foundation advisory board.

Fuel Freedom Foundation is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that is working to reduce the cost of driving your existing car by opening the market to cheaper fuel choices at the pump. Achieving this goal will mean accelerated economic growth, greater energy security, reduced air pollution, lower greenhouse gas emissions and improved health.

WuDunn brings years of in-depth experience both as a seasoned entrepreneur, and an award-winning journalist who has been directly involved in alternative energy issues. In 2011, Newsweek cited WuDunn as one of the "150 Women Who Shake the World." In 2012, WuDunn was selected as one of 60 notable members of the League of Extraordinary Women by Fast Company magazine. Following that, in 2013, she was included as one of the "leading women who make America" in the PBS documentary, "The Makers." She is the co-author of the critically acclaimed book Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, which she co-wrote with her husband Nicholas D. Kristof.

"I am very excited to join the board of an organization that is fighting to open the fuels markets to competition," said WuDunn. "I have been actively involved in energy issues over the years, and firmly believe that consumers should have the option to choose how they fuel their cars. I believe Fuel Freedom Foundation is the catalyst that will help the United States end our addiction with oil, and foster a new era where competition at the pump reigns. We desperately need this change."

"Sheryl brings incredible knowledge and experience to energy issues and solutions for energy problems. We are honored to welcome her to our board of advisors," said Yossie Hollander, Co-Founder of Fuel Freedom Foundation. "Sheryl is a proven agent of change, so we are anxious for her expertise to help us achieve our goal of reducing the cost of transportation fuels in the United States by $300 billion in the next ten years."

Sheryl WuDunn currently works at a small banking boutique helping growth companies, including those operating in the emerging markets. She raises capital for a variety of clients in new media, technology and health-related industries. She is also co-founder of FullSky Capital, an advisory firm focused on socially driven ventures.

Ms. WuDunn has an M.B.A. from Harvard, an M.P.A. from Princeton University and a B.A. from Cornell University. She is currently on the Board of Trustees at Princeton, and is a former Board Trustee at Cornell.
