Internal Promotion of Executive Vice President of Development Amy Ostermeyer Expands Leadership Team 

Monolith, a global leader in commercial-scale carbon black production using the methane pyrolysis process, recently promoted Amy Ostermeyer to Chief Development Officer. In her five years with the company, Ostermeyer has been instrumental in growing the Monolith team, tripling the company’s footprint in Nebraska, while also forging strong relationships with customers; development partners; local, state and federal officials; and regulatory agencies. 

“Amy has consistently set a high standard for anything she takes on, and over the last five years we have watched her growth-oriented mindset help to drive our strategy forward,” said Rob Hanson, cofounder and CEO, Monolith. “We’re fortunate to have Amy on the leadership team and look forward to the expanded role she will play as we strive to reach our vision for the future.” 

In her new role, Amy will lead the company’s carbon black and hydrogen product sales and marketing teams. In addition, she will spearhead Monolith’s efforts around market-driven product development efforts, which will only continue to expand with the increasing production capacity at Olive Creek 1 and with Olive Creek 2 coming online, as well as help lead the company’s customer-focused growth strategy. 

She joined the Monolith organization as vice president of human resources in 2018, followed by a promotion to executive vice president of development in 2021. A native Nebraskan, Ostermeyer holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and a juris doctorate from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. 

“Over the course of my time at Monolith, I’ve had the privilege of sharing the importance of Monolith’s impact with our employees, communities, partners and legislators,” said Amy Ostermeyer. “I’m eager to expand upon this work alongside our innovative and talented team and grow the technology that will create the path to environmental transformation.”
