Heating oil trade association, The Federation of Petroleum Suppliers (FPS) has announced the appointment of a new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
Effective from 5th February 2018, following the completion of his employment with Phillips 66 Limited, Guy Pulham will succeed Mark Askew as CEO.
Fifty two year old Guy has almost 30 years of experience within the upstream and downstream oil industry having gained a degree in Economics at Surrey University in 1988. Guy brings a wealth of industry knowledge to the role having previously held several economic, analytical, strategy and sales jobs within Phillips 66 Limited and more recently holding leadership positions encompassing the wholesale and retail sales business channels with additional responsibility in the management of five transport haulier contracts across the UK and the promotion of the JET brand.
Appointed to continue the growth and values of the FPS, Guy comments: “The FPS has achieved considerable success and I’m delighted to be asked to use my skills and experience to help the fantastic team at Solihull continue to work very hard for its membership.
I believe that the most effective representation comes from talking to the members and understanding their businesses and, as a result, knowing what initiatives or support the FPS can provide and what important issues to take to Government in order to influence and respond to legislation. We must also ensure that the members are fully cognisant of all that is available to them as FPS members through regular messaging and conferences. The biggest challenge of them all will be trying to find innovative and impactful ways to improve an already award-winning FPS EXPO!”
FPS President Jodie Allan added: “I am really excited by this appointment. Guy brings to the FPS a results driven and strategic background with a desire to effectively communicate both on behalf of and with the membership. His knowledge of the UK fuels market (especially the distributor and reseller businesses in the UK), his transport background and his personal relationships within the industry will prove invaluable in the next phase of growth for the FPS. I look forward to working with him.”
