In this video, Fool.com analysts Austin Smith and Jason Moser discuss the importance of strong leadership in a company. As they point out, investors put trust in leadership to manage both the company and the wealth of the shareholders. It's crucial to assess the quality of management before making any investment decisions, and Clean Energy Fuels' (NASDAQ:CLNE) leadership is one of the key reasons to invest in the company. T. Boone Pickens started the business in 1997 as Pickens Fuel Corps, and along with CEO Andrew Littlefair, set forth with the goal to develop America's Natural Gas highway. These two are invested in the company both financially and personally – Pickens owns about 23% of the company and remains deeply involved. The Motley Fool touts strong management as a crucial factor for investment-making decisions. Does Clean Energy Fuels pass that test?
