WASHINGTON, March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Multi-Media Enterprises is reporting that Mission NewEnergy Limited (ASX: MBT), a global leader in providing energy from renewable origins, has named HP's Brian Tippens, lead of that company's Global Supplier Diversity & Development Programs, to its Advisory Board. The appointment was announced by Mission's Advisory Board Chairman Major General Wilbert D. Pearson (USAF-Ret).

"Alternative energy is a compelling issue for all industries both from a cost and environmental perspective," Pearson said. "Brian's leadership at HP, a globally recognized 'green' advocate, and his previous experience at Intel and as an adjunct professor of law at Kaplan University, together with his personal commitment to finding solutions to environmental challenges, provides Mission NewEnergy with another strong voice for reliance upon responsible products for our future."

Mission NewEnergy, an Australian based company, is involved in the management of more than 140,000 indigent farmers in India growing and processing non-edible Jatropha seeds in marginal land without displacing agricultural land used for food supply. The Jatropha solution is receiving global support as the seeds do not affect food supplies or prices and the company does not rely upon government funding.

James Garton, President of Mission NewEnergy, USA said, "We welcome Brian Tippens as an Advisory Board member. We will continue to bring together outstanding business leaders, scholars and advocates to our Council to work with General Pearson in pursuing a sustainable future relying on renewable energy."

Tippens is a University of San Francisco graduate and received his Juris Doctorate from the University of the Pacific. At HP, Brian is responsible for driving implementation of Social & Environmental Responsibility and green procurement policies.

"Environmental concerns cross all corporate, political and economic borders," Tippens said. "I am pleased to be associated with a company pursuing solutions that will impact all industries in all nations."
