It not only affords a great opportunity for growth within our scope of business, but for myself to become more well-rounded and educated on the fuel industry as a whole,” said Richmond. “I look forward to acquiring all of the latest news and information within the fuel industry from the committee and passing this information on to my co-workers as well as our customers.”
