    Joe Allaben Corporate Reliability Director

    Third-generation Ducks Unlimited member

    During his first job interview at Pine Bend, Joe noticed a familiar name on the wall. The company was a supporter of Ducks Unlimited. His dad and grandfather were members of that same environmental conservation organization during Joe’s childhood years in Michigan.

    More than 25 years later, Joe is now a corporate reliability director at Pine Bend and has been instrumental in advancing Flint Hills’ partnership with Ducks Unlimited. In the past three decades, Flint Hills has contributed more than $750,000 to Ducks Unlimited, which has helped restore more than 40,000 acres of lakes and wetlands across Minnesota.

    “At Flint Hills Resources, protecting the environment is very important to us,” says Joe. “Working with Ducks Unlimited to develop habitat and the Living Lakes Initiative has been an excellent partnership in helping us achieve that. It’s something we’re really proud of.”

    Flint Hills Resources and Ducks Unlimited have been working together since 1985 to protect and enhance Minnesota's lakes and wildlife habitat.
